    I don't know if this newsgroup is checked regularly or not, but I wanted to
    know if it was possible to get a updated graphics card for this laptop. The
    64Mb version I currently have is starting to look a bit old.

    Any recommendations? Can a tech-svvy, but not expert, person do the upgrade
    themselves?

    Thanks,
    Alain

    Thanks, I got separate advice from Acer directly which exactly matched that
    advice. Bad news, but I guess that "progress"...

    Regards,

    If Acer ever upgraded the video for that model you can probably replace the
    system board. Not a cheap part and not an easy job. Still, might be worth
    investigating.
