  1. Heya guys, i just bought this accer aspire 5720, is it possible to upgrade the graphics card? or is it intergrated.

  2. HELP, HELP, HELP!!!!

    I have an Acer Aspire 5720-425B about 1 yr. old which runs on power cord about 90% of the time. The computer has probably less that 50 hours total use in one year.

    But when I startup on battery mode, fully charged and on “power saver mode,” I initially show about 95% battery life (1 hour, 50 minutes). After only 7-10 minutes the battery goes dead and the computer shuts down.

    It seems either the battery is defective or there is a system short draining the battery. Has anyone had this problem before. I don’t want to get another battery if a short in the computer exists.

    Q: Anyone out there have any ideas???

    Since the computer is more than 1 year old the warranty is dead so I presume I am SCREWED!
