Question about Acer Extensa 4620 Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
It's pretty common for notebooks to have 'integrated graphics' which can't be modified or replaced since they are part of the mother board and normally also share memory with other functions.
Only higher end units aimed at gamers are equipped with video graphics hardware that can be replaced to upgrade.
If you would like to give your system a boost, consider adding some RAM; it is pretty cheap and then the 'stolen' 64 MB of memory used by the graphics chips is no longer a bottleneck.
"The second omission is that of a separate graphics card. Playing sophisticated 3D games is becoming a reality with a lot of the latest mobile chipsets, but certainly not yet for people on a budget, those days are still some way off. Instead, what Acer has supplied is an integrated S3 Savage 8 graphics core, which shares 64MB of the system memory."

The Blue Dump or Blue screen problem is related with RAM.

If you wiggle the screen and it comes back, then it is not your Video card. Probably just a loose connection with your LCD cable to the LCD screen. Although you may also need a new screen/cable.
The weird thing is that it "fades" out... which would indicate a bad screen to me.. but securing the cable is alot cheaper to try first.
Completely rule out your graphics card by connecting your laptop to an external monitor... if it works fine for a long period of time then your card is fine.
