    hello I have some question about acer 8935g upgrading from HD4760 to gts 250M. At first I have two of this v-cards taken from an acer 8940g. Both card worked well. Now I want to replace my ATI V-Card because it burned. Now when I replace the ATI Card with the Nvidia 250M and start my laptop, I can't see the nvidia Card in my Bios. Can it be so? Both Cards are from Acer they worked well. Now my question is what I have to do to run one of these cards. I have read so much. Some tell that it muste be flashed the Bios from MOBO anotherone means that is always nassery to change the inf of driver and so on. Now I'have been a little bit confused. Can someone help to run these Cards? A how to do were great.
    Thx

    So.. i tried to upgrade the 8935g with a 250m ( got a green - not red PCB model since it was the only one i found at the time. The dead 4670 was red ) and... surprise surprise.. bios doesn't even recognize it, yet alone windows.. i tried updating both system and video bios - nvflash does recognize the gpu and knows not to install different model roms... so the card should at least be visible even if it were to be hypothetically dead or poorly mounted - which it isn't. I also tried flashing a custom S-bios with some options enabled and V-bios rom integrated... still no go. System doesn't beep, it just boots with REALLY LOW brightness, 1 % would be an overstatement - If i flash a bright light closely at the screen i can barely see to navigate into windows.. and i can open GPU-z which as well doesn't recognize the card... Tried different outputs.. monitor,TV.. nada. So, what gives? Is the pci slot dead, card dead... wrong pcb color ^^ incompatibility... can the bios be modded somehow to allow this card ? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you ! Oh and increasing the brightness w/ FN keys or otherwise doesn't work - it s not a windows issue. It starts from system post.
