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.

Acer Aspire T180 - Very Slow Boot to Post Screen


You can run drive diagnostics to test RAM and hard drive, but I would guess that it's a peripheral of some type (I wouldn't think it would be a hard drive or memory problem since your PC runs well in windows). Since the system will eventually time-out trying to initialize a device, it would explain your symptoms. I would unplug your CD drives one at a time (with the system off) and reboot. If you have an onboard card reader, try that next. Printers, headphones, webcams, or any other USB devices can also cause problems.
Once you isolate the offending device, you can try to update your BIOS since some bios updates will address this type of issue. I am not sure if Acer offers BIOS updates, but you could always ask their tech support.
Regardless of the device, it could be an incompatible or failing device. Printers always seem to have updated drivers, so you could check with the manufacturer regarding that.
Otherwise, I would replace the device and test again.
Good Luck!

1 GB of ram? Check the software for minimum PC system requirements.It will say how many MHz is necessary to play the game.It will also give you what video card (min),RAM(min),DirectX (7 or Higher?) this game requires MINIMUM to run.Quite often the game will run,but poorly.Your AMD 2200 runs at 1800 which isn't lightening fast,but sufficient.I think the addition of at least 1 more GB of RAM is what you need,a total of 3GB would really make the computer happy when playing games.

Run this program from Microsoft to test your current memory for errors.
My computer is much like yours,I have XP Media-The 8600 card,a dual core 2.8 processor and 3GB of RAM.This setup will run a online racing game without hick ups at 1152 x 864 resolution.When I only had 1GB of RAM it would stutter like it was constantly trying to load the program,so I added another Gig and it started playing allot better.It couldn't keep up with Halo online until I added another 1GB for a total of 3GB.I am using a 32x version of XP,going to a 64x setup would improve performance even more.
Sorry,I'm talking too much.Try the RAM after you test what you have,you'll be glad you did!

I just wanna kno if my GTA4 is gonna work smooth in full grafics with this card..


Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this.
I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.

My1 gb ram didn't make any change even in games in my pc even those games which used to run at a particular speed earlier before the added ram are running just like thet speed even after adding 1gb more...


Ok, let's explain this. RAM does not necessarily make your pc faster.
Your pc can be faster if you upgrade your CPU or graphic card(only graphic application will make you notice the increased speed in graphics).
RAM can be a bottleneck for application that need a lot of memory like photoshop when working on multiple very high resolution images or 3D cad when working on large assemblies, or VMWare.
Vista manages the RAM in such a way that you might notice a slight performance increase and less disk usage during standard desktop activities, but XP doesn't.
if you don't use very many applcations at a time and/or you don't use memory consuming applications, the added RAM is not used at all and your computer won't be any faster than it used to be.
Video memory is basically the same. you will notice a difference in performance from a large video memory(512MB-1GB-2GB) only if you game at high resolution like 1080p or higher, usually supported only by large monitors like 20" or larger.

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.

Vaio graphics card upgrade


First off, it needs to be a desktop. Make sure the Motherboard has a PCI-e slot, and that the card is seated properly. Also make sure that you screw in the metal tab in properly or the card could come loose.

Unable to upgrade RAM......


Sounds like they are 2 significantly different speed memory sticks. Normally, the faster of the two sticks will "clock down" to match the slower stick.

Without knowing the motherboard and memory stick specifications, it's hard to tell, but it's most likely a speed issue.
