    Hi there.

    I hope you are still active on here.
    I have bought the card you mention in the above post, the Asus GT240M and am trying to get it to work on a 6930g. Physically it's perfect, but the machine doesn't post. Do you have any insight on it?

    It should work out of the box. If it doesn't, which seems to be the case, it's quite likely that the GPU is gone. Try updating the system BIOS.

    Hello dear acer owners and MXM experts,

    I own a Acer 5620ZG with a ATI 4650 1GB DDR2 that died recently, and I was browsing ebay trying to find another one to replace it and I found a used Nvidia GT240M MXMII 1GB DDR3 for about 50€ does anyone know if will it work? I already have NetRolller 3D bios (I had an 9600M before).
    I can also buy another 4650 for about 80€, I was wondering if the 240M is a better card since its DDR3 or not?
    I still use this laptop for browsing and more like as a media center and some light gaming when I'm not at home and I love it.

    Thanks in advance

    It would run cooler and might give you slight performance bump. Go for it.

    I would say no.

    It is a more slightly more powerful card. But it's feature set is lacking. More modern games will support the 4650 than the 240m

    Thanks man I'll probably buy it today, as soon as it gets here I'll probably post some news.

    Thanks for pointing it out, I understand but I don't really game that much with this laptop and heaviest game I'll play here is Paladins which I believe still runs DirectX 9

    I'm sorry if this is a duplicate, but I didn't see a way to search just this thread.

    Is it possible to simply remove the MXM card from an Acer 8735G? Or replace it with something that won't broil my lap?

    I don't care much about performance anymore, I'd rather the unit run cooler. Onboard GMA video would be fine, but I don't know if it'll automatically kick in by removing the MXM card, and I'd rather not take it out just to put it back in if it doesn't work.

    @TehSuigi please update data for 5920G too, had 1GB GT240M in it.

    and it works with original bios, no need to modify anything for it to post

    but this one has toshiba vbios

    forgot, also tested on 7720G 8920G 8930G 6920G and works with original bios
    so i was curious as to why was that, and as you can see on the hardware id tab
    the subsys is 01211025, this subsys ID is normally for 8600M, so my guess is that this card will
    work for any acer laptop that originally suppported 8600M, but that is a guess and is not verified.

    an exception to this is the 9920G that originally had 8600m but for some reason needs its own vbios
