The acer aspire's onboard video doesn't have 3D excelleration, and i'm almost sure that they don't support pci express video either, but, i might be wrong, go into your local computer parts supplier, let them know what you have and they will let you know

My acer z5600 crashes with multicoloured screen when playing games


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.

Hi. I want to play games on my Acer Aspire SA80 Desktop, but every time I install the game, it says the video card is not supported. I don't know what to do. Please help!


As per Acer this computer model has a Integrated SiS Mirage Graphic onboard card or a seperate
AGP 8x Add-on Card (selected models). It looks like the game you are trying to install requires advanced graphics card.

Please specify the game you are trying to install and also specify if you have a AGP card installed (and what is the make and model of the same).

If you do not have a AGP card installed , we can check the game specification and try to install a AGP card and check with it.

I have acer aspire series computer for 2 years.one day when i open my computer my monitor display no signal what are the reasons


Hi! it means that the monitor is not picking any signal from the tower or computer.Check all physical cables first esp the video cable from the monitor to the tower.Check if the computer has power by checking lights, sound coming of the machine. Check if monitor cable is securely plugged in to the vga or hdmi port.If you are using a adapter for that cable try to directly plugin the cable without using the adapter.If still no signal, check if you have a external video card or internal.if you have a external video card and thats the one that youre using then remove the external video card(you need to open up the tower and physically remove the external video card) and connect the video cable to the onboard card then check if will get a signal.hope this helps...

Acer Desktop is Freezing up During Video or game play


This includes variety of problems like hardware related (defection or incompatibility of some components),operating system incorrect drivers, software, memory defragmentation or something else. There could be some malicious software making symptoms like this, or even regularly installed software with bugs or disrupting system resources. So depending of the real cause, the solution of the problem can invoke interventions as simple as reinstalling driver, or more complicated and expensive like reinstalling operating system, changing software or even hardware components.Try to increase RAM of your system , this may help you.

Hi, my display card on a acer aspire t310 died. Which card do i need to get? AGP PCI-e?


AGP video cards are the best and latest generation video cards. Depending upon your requirements, especially it you play games that have high graphics requirements, go for the G-Force graphics card with as much video RAM as possible. Check out the various G-Force graphics cards.

Acer Aspire T310, no signal to monitor?


Check and make sure the monitor is good by using another computer on that monitor. If that is good then the cable is good. Are you getting any video display at all? Does it start and then lose signal or no signal at all? Is there on board video or a video card installed or both? If there is both have you tried both vga connections? If there is a video card installed make sure that it has not come loose and is fully seated. Does the computer have lights when it boots up....Hard drive activity ect?

Video card


The only drivers I could find, because Acer's site is faulty, were from the European Acer site. I don't think the drivers differ, however. Click the link below and you'll find all the drivers/software/BIOS for this PC.

2.Make sure your video card is 512mb or higher when using windows vista operating otherwise it will cause a problem.
2. Make sure you have a correct of driver of your video card. If you're not sure download it and install it again on you computer.

Display problem


YOUR COMUTER GRAPHICS CARD PROBABLY NEEDS A UNGRADE, VIDEO GAMES PUT A LOT OF STRESS ON THE PROC NEED TO CLEAN OT THE PROCESSOR AND THE VIDEO CARD TO DELIVER GAMING PERFORMANCE. SINCE YOUR SYSTEM WASN'T DESIGN FOR GAMING IT MAY CAUSE A LOT OF MEMORY CONFLICT WITH THE RAPID TRANSFERRING OF INFORMATION FROM THE PROCRSSOR TO THE RAM, TRY UPGRADING YOUR RAM AND VIDEO CARD AND U SHOULD HAVE BETTER PERFORMANCE WITHOUT SHUTDOWN. U MAY DUST OUT THE COMPUTER DUST ON THE PARTS CAN MAKE THEM OVERHEAT AND SHUT DOWN
