ACER has abysmal/non-existent tech support:

Model numbers are assigned by vendors and department stores,
not the manufacturer. Last time I phoned their tech support
regarding a client's laptop and gave them all the numbers, they
had no idea what model it was and which network card it used.

There are three possible solutions:

1) Take your laptop back to the store, and never buy
ACER again


2) Go to the ACER web-site, and download all of their
video drivers, then try installing them using trial and error.

Most video drivers are smart enough to detect if the correct
hardware is installed, and will refuse to install with a warning
message if it is the wrong driver (you hope):

3) Right-click on your desktop:

Properties ==> Settings ==> Advanced ==> Adapter

(or something similar)

and identify the exact video card model and CHIP-SET type.

Use this information to either download the correct driver
from the video card manufacturer (not ACER) or Google it

Is the T690 compatible with an Nvidia Geforce 8600 gt PCI-e graphics card???


Yes, it appears the PC has a PCI-e graphics slot.

And it does not need an extra power cord in it so you should be fine with that card.

Try restoring the computer to an earlier date and see if that works first.
