    The information provided by Acer is not enough. Just the basic information is available. Their business is to sell a new system instead.

Youneed to find the spec / manual of your motherbaord to see what cpu's are compatible. You can find information for your comp here http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#
or you can enter you comp serial number here for info

I changed my cpu fan out, when i started it up it ran 30sec and shut down. So i replaced new mother board without fan., it still shuts down after a few sec. I disconected the 4 pin power source and it will...


From your problem description it sounds like the CPU was overheated (and failed) before you replaced the CPU fan - so the fan replacement was too late. Since the procesor already failed, installing a new motherboard without a fan did not accomplish anything.

The 4 pin power plug provides +12 volts DC to the processor. When you disconnected it, the processor essentially could not run at all and the system is no longer capable of detecting the CPU failure and shutting down the power supply.

You need to install a known good CPU which is the right type and speed for your computer. Unless you are experienced in replacing,CPU's, fans, heat-sinks and applying thermal grease I recommend that you have a PC technician perform these tasks.

If you believe that this information is of value to you please rate me on the FixYa website.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

It can be possible that the CPU and the mother board has some conflicts .If all unwanted programs were taken off , the OS was installed fresh, an antivirus was installed and the drivers installed then , the system must run well. If not cross check the CPU and the board as your memory is new. Does the CPU/board support the memory.

Need to know the bios version normally you set the clock speed in bios so go into bios and see if it lists cpu clock speed and change it manually. However if you have american mega-trends or ami bios it makes of difference so post back if that does not help you.

Ram upgrade capability


Simply, yes you can. just open the case and put in the new boards. you can buy higher spec. memory(as long as the pins are the same number)
I.E. ddr-sdram boards will fit and as long as the speed is the same (132.8 Mhz) or higher.
I changed from 133Mhz to 333Mhz and the performance was much improved.
The PC3200 is the important bit, should be the same.
after you change the memory ,try running disc clean up in "start, all programs, accessories, disc clean up" this will also speed things up as well as de-fragmennting your drive(s)

Pc freezing


hi there,
this sounds like a lack of resources on your system... i would recommend that you increase your RAM ..say if u got 256Mb upgrade to around 512Mb ... also you should look at your CPU processor also ... this would have an effect on the speed and how your system goes about burning DVD's ...also make sure nothing else is running in the background ...say virus scanners etc....also maybe u can try this software ..works nicely:-

1801 Microcode Patch Error


I bought a Compaq Computer, 2.0Ghz, 256MB, 20GB for my College project. When i put the power on, it restarts almost immediately (so many times repeatedly). Then after such reboots, it successfully brings a message "1801 - Microcode Patch Error" and a F1-Boot directive.
