The Kaba Ilco 1000 lock does not use any sort of card reader for programming--it is strictly a push button lock.

From this link, which you can cut and paste into your web browser:
you can search for your model of Kaba Ilco lock and click on the box with the picture of your lock.
This will take you to the page for that particular lock. On the right side of any given page, you will see the heading "Documentation" an under that, a link that says "click here to visit the literature and support page".
Following that link will lead you to a grid of the various lock models, with links to the manuals, etc.
These will be PDF files and will require you to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer to view them. If you don't have Adobe Reader, :

You will also find a "Contact Us" link on the first link I gave you, where you can contact Kaba Ilco directly for customer and technical assistance.

I hope I've been able to help. Good luck!

Lost GMA Card for Kaba ilco 780 FDU. How can i get another?

When you set up the system, you should have made at least 3 GMA's. Hopefully they did that and there are two other GMA's in a safe place. We keep ours locked up with the other key masters.

If you don't have any GMA's at all, you will have to call KABA. They will give you a reset code to reboot your FDU and then you can make new GMA's. You will have to remake all the other cards as well. It will be like starting over.

Good luck.

I have got acer aspire 4736 laptop with (Intel® GMA 4500MHD) graphic card. It doesn't support many latest games and also the game that it supports sucks playing on it. Is there any USB graphic card...

There is no solution for this unfortunately. USB video adapters are, at best, only good for presentations and image work.

The Intel GMA 4500MHD has no integrated memory of its own so it share's what memory is available from RAM installed. You can try to increase the amount of memory installed which, in effect, would provide a bit more system memory for other functions, while allowing the GMA 4500 to hold on to what it needs.

The down side is that the GMA 4500MHD just isn't what you need to play with high-end game graphics. Minimal settings will generate ok frames per second but you will be limited to playing pre-2006 games if you want to get anywhere near even 30 fps.

In other words, this graphics adapter isn't desired in playing games. It's useful only in a pinch and only if frame per second count doesn't matter.

Games are Not Running Smoothly On GX-280!!

Your problem lies in your graphics card. Your PC has 915G Express Chipset which contains integrated graphics, gma 900. Gma 900 is not made for gaming. You'll be experience lots of problems with gaming with that gma 900. So your best bet is to invest into a new graphics card. One of cheapest you can get is Nvidia Geforce 8400GS, and it's way way better than your gma 900.

You can get a 8400GS for $38.99. So it's not so expensive and will play NFS Most Wanted perfectly at high settings.

But if you can't invest into a new card, try downloading this software called "Hare", it can defragment your ram, it might help a little.

Good Luck
