    Hey NetRolller (and all of you other gurus on here) -Thanks for all the awesome info you dispense! I read through all 200+ pages of the "MXM Models and Cards" thread, but haven't seen any conclusive info on 4650 into aspire 5520g.

    I know the 9650m gt is workable, and possibly the 240m, but the sweet spot price/performance-wise looks to be the 4650 (at least here in beijing).

    I saw here that the 3650 install went ok (Czech site via google translate). They didn't mention having to use an external monitor, but they did cite the "red pcb (acer bios) as the only choice. The 3650 is not listed as compatible on the first page of this thread, however.


    EDIT: Ok, I saw in the 9920G GPU Options? thread that

    This would mean that I could likely drive an external monitor, but not the built-in lcd, right?

    I hate being one of the "Hey, you've already answered this like 1500 times, but I'm too lazy to read" guys, but the info is spread amongst SO many pages, and keywords don't match up 100% -I'm going for a 4650 into 5520g, but the above info comes from a thread discussing 3650 into a 9920g...

    Hi all!

    I'm just interested in finding out roughly what I can upgrade my laptops card to. I have an Extensa 5620G with an 2400 XT. I know from the list that it can be upgraded, and that it is a MXM II type gfx card, but I'm not 100% what that exactly means. Just curious into any info someone can give me on what exactly this means for potential upgrades.

    Thanks

    Hello, just thought I'd share:

    I just got my hands on a HD4650 1GB DDR2 [VG.M9606.005] for my Acer Travelmate 7520G (MXM-II) to replace the HD2400xt.

    When I booted I only got a gray screen and the GPU/CPU fan didn't even start spinning (didn't even let me see the POST screen.. nothing).
    I tried using the DVI and VGA ports with a display, but nothing seemed to work.

    Is there anything I could do, or is the card just plain broken?

    I want to confirm VGA card upgrade of ACER 5920G to 9600M GT.

    View attachment 91255

    Just now i am posting from my Acer 5920G with my "new" nVidia 9600M GT (512MB, GDDR 3). This patched BIOS from NetRolller 3D WORKS: "Aspire 5920G (Phoenix, with unlocked menus, updated 2011-11-06): http://ifile.it/noxplab/5920G_MXM_V3.WPH".

    The test of my laptop for days is success, works nice (only the temps of the vga looks high)...

    THANKS to NetRolller 3D

    Maybe must someone change this: "[Note: The 9600M GT is NOT compatible with the 5920G]" in first page: http://forum.notebookreview.com/acer/396320-acer-mxm-models-cards.html

    I test my 9600M GT and this is the results:

    Software FurMark
    Duration 15min
    2717 frames, 3 FPS, max 95°C
    Resolution: 1280x720 (W) - AA:0 samples
    FPS: min:2, max:7, avg:3
    GeForce 9600M GT/PCIe/SSE2 (10DE-0649)

    View attachment 83351

    Is that ok? Is normal? The max temp 95°C is ok or too high?

    Thanks

    Acer no longer makes MXM laptops, most of the users either have upgraded theirs or have bought new machines.

    Furmark is nice to check insane stability, but you better try something more useful like a game, and you'll probably see like 10*C less. 5920G has really poor cooling :( Also do you have copper shim in there?
