There's many different cases out there which more than once, turned out to be the hardest part of the job. There may clips on both sides inside the case, right up against the opening of the expansion slot. Where the front of the new Rom Drive will be installed. If so then just push these in one at a time as you push out that end.
If thats not the case in your case, with your case (lol)Go to Google or DogPile and ask how to remove the slot cover on an Acer Case.
Good luck!

New gpu


To upgrade the GPU you need to see what expansion slot it has on the motherboard for after market video cards. Once you know that then you can buy any card that has that expansion slot configuration. The thing you run into that really you shouldnt because your pc is fairly new. Is how much ram you can allow to allocate to the new card. The way you are clear of this issue is to buy a card with the ram built on then its not allocating any. As well be sure to go into bios and turn the other card off if its an onboard. Tell the pc to look at the new slot for video boot. This will stop any lag on boot.

How do you access the memory slots on an acer aspire z3731


Memory Sockets or Slots are the place where memory RAM modules are inserted in the motherboard. The Acer Aspire Z3731 has 4 (4 banks of 1) memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :
2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

Compatible video cards for E661GXM


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Barb Holder.

Your Acer computer supports all graphics cards that use the AGPX8 Expansion slot.

The AGPX8 expansion slot is identified as it has a clip at one end of the slot.
Nvidia made graphics cards around the 6600GT that feature the AGPX8 slot.

All you need to do is find a graphics card that supports AGPX8.

Take care!

How to change the graphics card software in acer aspire desktop....


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.

I wanna replace the DVDreader/writer in my Acer Z5600 for a Bluray unit reader/writer can I do this myself because Acerservice in Holland don't wanna do this for me...


Looking at the image of the machine; the DVD drive is a vertically loaded slot.
replacing the DVD reader/writer with a Blue Ray one... not entirely sure if it's possible without advice from the manufacturer (contact them to be 100% sure).
because of the physical dimentions of the screen; the DVD drive will be a laptop dvd drive not a normal desktop one.... so you could hunt online for a slot loaded Blue ray drive for a laptop... but again no guarantee without manufacturers confirmation.
most machines past 2005 have SATA connections inside for the optical drives; but also confirm this before spending money.

Is this any graphic card available for aspire 5315?


No, your laptop has an integrated graphics controller and no slot to put a better one in there. That is typical for a laptop, most do not have slots for upgrading components like desktops do.
