You can probably change the motherboard and components to a larger tower. Some of those Small-Form-Factor motherboards aren't a perfect fit into a regular tower\case. I would suggest considering modifying your current case so that it has better air flow to the video card. Like drilling out some holes or enlarging the holes in the side of the case that is near the fan on the video card, or cutting out a hole and putting an 80mm fan on the side-panel so that it blows air in on the video card. Is the video card that is getting too hot the original video card, or did you add it in after you bought the computer? If it's an add-in card, then maybe you should buy another motherboard, case, & etc; or a "barebones" kit and put your video card in that. You can often find decent prices on barebone kits at,, or

Yes, it will fit, it's a standard microATX board. Just make sure the new case has the necessary studs, some high end ones don't.

Typically a computer case has small brass screws holding the components in. Every case is different, but just start taking out any screws you see and dismantle it piece by piece, whatever becomes available to remove. Be careful of the ribbon cables, they are damaged easily. Be sure to ground yourself on something or wear an ant-static band.

Acer x3300 desktop does not start

It could be a number of things. I would start with RAM or Motherboard. RAM is easy. If you have multiple sticks. Pull them all out and place them back in. If that is a no go and you have multiple, Pull all the sticks and put one in at a time. If it boots with one stick then you have a bad RAM stick. With all of that said, I would worry that it is motherboard since it won't take you to the BIOS screen.

You should only have to take out the ethernet wire from the desktop and plug it into the laptop (the one that looks like a big phone cord). However, depending on the connection you may need logon information for the broadband service provider.

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.
