Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook ?

I bought Acer Aspire 4920G Laptop, It is working but the graphics

\015 I bought Acer Aspire 4920G Laptop, It is working fine except that the graphics card is 256MB and it say's on my laptops configuration found on the lower right corner below the keyboard ''Up to 1024 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400XT HyperMemory''. I don't understand what it say's. I thought this laptop has 1024MB memory for VGA. But somehow it's lagging while I play games. That is why I'm seeking or asking, is there any updates for all the drivers of this laptop? or is there a chance to make my graphic card work better? Thank's a lot! I hope somebody know's the solution for these problems.\015

Hi,

I also have acer 4920 (not sure if "G" or not), which has Radeon Mobility HD 2400 XT graphics card, stated to have 256 MB memory and "up to" 1024 MB.

I believe arjuun is incorrect - this is a dedicated graphics card with dedicated memory (256 MB) and ability to access system memory to increase graphics memory to 1024 MB

I can play games fine e.g. Half life 2, counter strike source, Shaiya. (not necessarily on highest quality - but mid range and runs fine).

If you are having problems it might be driver problem (I'm not an expert though). Worth following up however - your computer should be OK with reasonable games (... but don't expect Crysis to run at max resolution).

FYI - I ended up here as I am searching for graphics drivers - acer.co.uk has the original drivers (which you could try), but I cannot find updated drivers anywhere! ATI website list the card, but has no drivers. Some of the "free" driver update software say an update is available (but I have to pay to actually get it!)

Note - if you go to control panel > systems & maintenance > system > device manager - then expand "display adapters" it will tell you what graphics card you have.
The 256MB graphics currently shown in your PC is on board graphics which is most probably shared by the RAM. Its not actually graphics card. And the performance is very poor compared to actual graphics card or GPU (Graphics processing Unit). There is nothing that can to done to improve performance other to add an actual GPU.

Thanks.
