    Thank you so much for this thread. Very helpful. I currently have the 9600M GS 521MB in my 8930G. Recently the Mobo and GPU both gave up the ghost. I found a replacement mobo for a decent price and ordered it. My question is:

    Can the 9600 GS be replaced with the 9600 GT?? Hard to find any GS's online and plenty of GT's. Can anyone of you fine folks confirm for me that I can throw in the GT for full compatibility?

    The motherboard model in my laptop is MBASZ0B001.

    Many many many thanks!

    @SndChsr According to the list on the first page of this thread 9600M GS should work fine.

    Hello!
    Today i have received package with GeForce GT240 and Core2 Duo Extreme X9000 which i tested in Acer Aspire 6920(G). Originally it was equiped with T5900 and GeForce 9500GS 512MB DDR2. I have flashed moded BIOS for this laptop. CPU working good for now, but with GT240 there is problem. After power up in 1-2 sec display is in vertical lines.

    Old video card:
    G84-625-A2
    Model: P407
    VG.8PG06.005

    New video card:
    M90GN MXM Card(N10P-GS/DDR3)
    N10P-GS-A2

    I looked into BIOS (into dumps from Phoenix Tool), but i cant find something i can replace for example from 5920G.
    Any ideas what i can do to fix that?

    hi,
    Hi, can you send me a link where you bought the card, or a photo?

    as i wrote in a post earlier with the gt240m you don't even have to use a mod bios, it will work with the original too, both in 5920g and 6920g and many more
    if you have another laptop thy it there too, but my guess is that your card is defective

    Maybe i need to flash VBIOS for this card? If you have bin/rom file from similar card for Acer i can flash with programmer.

    After fight with seller for defective GT240M and refund, now i will try to mod GT330M from Toshiba. I read that some people have done this, but all finded by me links are dead. Is there somebody that can help me? I think i need add some resistors and eeprom like in AMD Radeon mod, but dont know where and what value. After adding VBIOS on it should my Acer 6920G works? I have already flashed some modded SBIOS, but i dont know if correct one, and what VBIOS i need. I have already upgraded this laptop to CPU X9100 but i hope it will not burn any DC/DC converters on motherboard.
    Please help me.
