    Hi,

    I own acer 4925. Upgrade it using x9000 processor. When i open it up, i found mxm slot with a dummy board. Can i upgrade it to dedicated vga card? It seems to be using mxm-b type card.

    nope
    different chipsets
    the one you have probably has gm45 chipset and the 4925g has the pm45 chipset

    and even if it worked you would have to remove some resistors from the motherboard near the chipset and add some near the mxm slot
    the motherboard is the same but configured differently for onboard and external gpu

    Yes, it is GM45 chipsets. So its not upgradeable? Have to replace motherboards?
