Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Motherboard or on-board graphics card failure

\015 Hi I have an Acer Aspire 9300 laptop with on-board NVIDIA GeForce 7600 graphics card. I recently got the old BSOD showing nv4_disp as the cause. Then when i rebooted the screen went all purple with lines up and down. I couldn't fix the problem so i reinstalled the OS (XP Pro) It was fine for a day but now i get one long beep and two short beeps on bootup and no screen display at all. When i googled the beeps it said it's either motherboard or graphics card but i have disabled the graphics card. Does anyone know how i can tell which is causing the problem and whether the graphics card can be replaced (if it's that that's the problem)? Failing that how can i tell which motherboard i have so that i can get a replacement? I would be most grateful for any advice.\015\012\015\012Cheers\015\012\015\012Rob \015
