    Well I had my Acer Aspire 5520G last March 2008 then it died around January 2010. But not actually died, the 8400M G card died then I bought a temporary gateway pc. Then Last Friday, I installed a brand new 8600M GT card on my 5520G and amazingly it was revived though I always get the MXM error 30 secs POST.

    maybe you would need to update your motherboard bios to the latest version and it would work.

    I started work @ Acer this week. I also got the impression that the Gemstone series wasn't the most favorite unit/series in the repair department.

    I also had to repair ( replace the mainboard ) on about 3 of them already :S
    Most of em come in with the "eternal" reboot problem. If that happens your Acer is probably (98.5% sure) gonna need a new one.

    I'm selling an 8600m GT if you want to try that...check my sig...only 45 bucks...

    Besides that...does the model have a CMOS battery? have you try disconnecting that and resetting the CMOS?
