It's pretty common for notebooks to have 'integrated graphics' which can't be modified or replaced since they are part of the mother board and normally also share memory with other functions.
Only higher end units aimed at gamers are equipped with video graphics hardware that can be replaced to upgrade.
If you would like to give your system a boost, consider adding some RAM; it is pretty cheap and then the 'stolen' 64 MB of memory used by the graphics chips is no longer a bottleneck.
"The second omission is that of a separate graphics card. Playing sophisticated 3D games is becoming a reality with a lot of the latest mobile chipsets, but certainly not yet for people on a budget, those days are still some way off. Instead, what Acer has supplied is an integrated S3 Savage 8 graphics core, which shares 64MB of the system memory."

SOURCE: upgrading graphics card
Connect the monitor to the onboard video connector first. then
you need to disable the on-board graphics in the BIOS save the setting and shutdown. Then connect the monitor to the GeForce video connector and boot up then you will get a video signal on the GeForce video card.

If you think the PC boots up but just no screen, check the Graphics settings in BIOS for first/initial diaplay with PCI instead of other Graphics Ports (on board/PCIe/PCI/AGP)? Disable on board display if any.

The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.
Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:
Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.
A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:
If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.
If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.
