Re: acer sound card plug?
Maybe the sound cable was disconnected. It is a 3 pins connector. It is not easy to see on the motherboard. The sound cable of your sound card has to be connected there. You might have to bring your computer to a repair service desk. I have also an Acer computer. And on mine, it is located near the rear on the computer.

Your video card is in what's called a PCI slot on the inside of your computer, most computers such as yours have an on board graphics card that's built into the motherboard itself. Thus in this situation you cannot really remove your video card. But if you want to put in a new video card, all you have to do is put in the video card in the PCI slot, and make sure your monitor is hooked onto the VGA, HDMI, or DVI slot. In fact, you can have more than one graphics card on your computer if you needed it.
Ya it sounds like your video Card is dying, though you can check with different RAM and try some normal games which don't need high Graphic. You have PCI Graphic card fitted on it then try removing and playing the game, then this way you can know what is the fault.
When you took the battery out you reset the Bios... You need to go back into the Bios and select Load system defaults from the main menu and reboot.
Go into Bios again and select the PCI-X or PCI depending on what new graphics card you have, or select Auto if its an option from the selections.
Also, I know it sounds stupid, but don't forget to plug the video cord into the proper spot. You'd be surprised how many people accidentally forget to plug it into the new card instead of the onboard graphics.
I don't understand what you are trying to say, but this is what I think you're saying. The onboard video card went bad and now you need to put in another one so that you can connect the monitor.
If that's true, you don't put another video card on the motherboard. You go out and purchase a Video Card that goes into one of the available PCI Slots on the back of the computer. It goes inside, but sticks out the back so you can connect the cable from the monitor to it.
You'll just have to know what kind of graphics card expansion slot you have. Older systems have AGP slots & newer ones have PCI-Express. This will help you decide which type of card to install.
Once past that, you would have to physically open up the CPU tower case while the machine is off & unplugged from the power. If it has an existing graphics card, it will have to be removed & the new one will be installed in its place. If you had been using onboard video, make sure to plug the monitor data cable to the NEW video card's VGA slot.
Everything practically plugs into ONE SLOT & only goes in ONE WAY. so if it does not fit, then it's being placed incorrectly. After putting it back together, just restart the machine & insert the installation CD that came with the new video card & follow the program instructions.
Please take note that it may require that the software and drivers previous display adapter will have to be removed first.
There may not be one you may be using onboard video load drivers that came with new card .reboot. open the case ..install card into motherboard slot reinstall case cover plug back in and reboot system should see and install.RICHARDM69
the computer should have the card in it. go to wal mart and look and some of them you will find one that will work. turn the computer off, take off the case, lay it on it's side take out the card, start up the computer, put in new disk, install software, turn computer off, lay it back on it's side, put the new card in, you will see how it goes in, case back on, start up computer. Your done!

Re add-on video card - select video card to be used in your CMOS/BIOS. Press "Del" during the bootup process. Alternately, you casn run the built-in diagnostic to diagnose any system changtes such as an add-on video card.
Re onboard soundport - try either the front or the rear line/speaker out. Verify that the drivers are properly installed in your Device Manager. By default, when you have an external speaker, the internal auto cuts-off.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
