  1. Yes, as long as it is a low profile card that is no wider than the expansion bay. I believe your Acer looks like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883103236

    yes it does! but I can't seem to get the card to work...it tells me no signal when I put it in...could you suggest something I could do to make it work??
  3. First thing to do is check in the BIOS at boot. Some older MBs require you to manually disable the on-board video and enable the PCIe video. Modern boards do that automatically.
    1) What is the make/model of the card?
    2) Are you connected to the monitor the same way you were with the on-board?
    3) you didn't forget to move the video cable from the on-board to the new card, did you?

    I actually don't know where to find the video cable, to exchange it. I know about how to run pc's but not how to fix or upgrade. could you help me??
  5. If I understand you correctly, you are saying you installed the gfx card but didn't move the cable from the integrated video port to the card's port? If that's the case, look on the back of the PC. The video cable will be the one coming from the monitor. Unplug it from the port it is plugged into now and plug it in to the similar port on the card. But do this with the PC off.

    thank you so much!!!! it is now working!
  8. Ain't it great! Enjoy.

    Now don't forget to install the gfx driver and set your resolution to your monitor's default resolution if it isn't already.
