Switch to Ubuntu. ;) If that's not an option then maybe aquire some more RAM. The only way your performance would decrease is if the card is using some of your available memory, that is your install 1GB of RAM. If that's not an option, purchase a USB thumb drive 2GB + and use the ready boost feature in Vista.

    Does your motherboard support 8x AGP? If it's locking up or freezing then maybe check your mobo manual for the specs.

    Ubuntu is an open source operating system based on linux.

    Not sure what you mean by "how much memory does it take???" The adapter/card uses it's own memory not your available RAM, unless you tell it to in the BIOS settings.

How to instal window XP into Acer aspire T180

The Aspire T180's single-core 2.4GHz AMD Athlon 64 3800+ processor and 1GB of RAM hamper its performance right out of the box, keeping it from being even a passable fit with the Windows Vista Home Premium OS we've seen on other budget machines. (The Aspire ships with Vista Home Basic.) The 160GB hard drive is also on the small side, and the nVidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430 MCP integrated graphics are not exactly top-notch tech, either.
You do, however, get a few bonuses. The software selection includes a 90-day trial of Norton AntiVirus 2006, as well as CyberLink PowerDVD, NTI CD-Maker Gold, and Acer's own performance, recovery, and security tools. And the PC does offer good expandability. Two RAM slots are free, as are an external 5.25-inch drive bay, three internal hard drive bays, two PCI Express (PCIe) slots (one x1 and one x16), and one PCI 2.2 slot. (A modem occupies a second PCI slot.) So it's possible to bump up the Aspire T180's power a bit with some carefully chosen components.

To load Win XP simply select CD-ROM BOOT option from BIOS(hit DEL / F2 key while starting up power), insert a bootable WinXP SP 2/3 CD, depending on it being Genuine Microsoft product or a cracked ver.). When prompted to hit any key, do so & follow instructions on the screen. This is assuming you are doing so for the first time, make 2/3 partitions, else re-install on 'C' Drive after formatting it. Use NTFS partition option. If any probs, pl write back & I'll give more detailed instructions.

Please check the cable that connects the monitor to the video card. Reseat the cable, the issue might be a loose connection. You can also try a known good monitor to isolate if it's the video card or monitor that is causing the problem. Something is preventing the monitor from receiving signals from the video card, hence the "no signal" message.

My hard drive never stops

Windows is probably constantly trying to create virtual memory using the hard drive's free space. Buy more RAM and/or create a larger virtual memory file. If it's Windows XP, try right-clicking on My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Performance, Advanced again, Change (under Virtual Memory), increase the Initial Size to AT LEAST what is "recommended" lower down on that screen but no more than 1 1/2 times the actual physical RAM, then click Set.

Cost of game hardware in india

2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.

Windows Virtual Memory Minimum is Low

fairly normal occurrence but you should have a look at your performance settings
go to control panel
double click system icon
click the advanced tab at the top
by performance click settings
in pop up window click advanced tab
at the bottom you'll see virtual memory
click change
most common option now is to set the radio button to system managed size
you should then ok each window.....
