Note - The blackened pin of a jumper represents pin 1.

Specification

The V55LA-N system has the following features -

  • A zero-insertion force (ZIF) socket for an Intel Pentium 75/90/100/120/133/150/166/200 MHz
  • Two DRAM banks composed of four 72-pin SIMM sockets that support 4/8/16/32-MB 60-/70ns fast-page or EDO-type SIMMs
  • 256/512-KB write-back synchronous pipeline-burst second-level cache onboard
  • 128-KB APM-compliant system and VGA BIOS
  • Two PCI-enhanced IDE interfaces that support up to four IDE devices in PIO mode 4 and DMA mode 2
  • System clock/calendar with 128 bytes CMOS RAM
  • Standard 1-MB video DRAM onboard plus two upgrade sockets for up to 2-MB video memory
  • 188-pin connector for PCI/ISA slot board
  • External ports:
    • PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports
    • Two buffered high-speed serial ports (NS16C550-compatible UARTs with 16-byte FIFOs
    • One ECP/EPP high-speed parallel port (IEEE 1284-compliant)
    • Video port
  • Onboard controller chipsets
    • System chipsets (ALI M1521, ALI M1523)
    • PCI local bus VGA with enhanced GUI acceleration (ATI 264VT / ATI 264GT RAGE II+)
    • Internal IDE (ALI 1523B)
    • System and PCI clock generator (Cypress 2254)
  • Plug-and-Play feature (PnP)
  • Power management features (device standby, global standby, and suspend modes)
  • Software Shutdown feature "Appears Off" (for Windows 95) is now integrated on the motherboard. A Software Shutdown power supply is required to use this feature. (Not all V55LA-N-II systems shipped with a Software Shutdown power supply).

Memory

The system board comes with four 72-pin SIMM sockets that support 4-MB and 16-MB single-density 60/70ns SIMMs and 8-MB and 32-MB double-density 60/70ns SIMMs. These systems ship with either Extended Data Output (EDO) or Fast Page Mode (FPM) 60/70ns memory. DO NOT MIX FPM and EDO SIMMS. Maximum is 128MB.


Video RAM Upgrade

Aspire Personal Solutions and SOHO systems ship with 1 MB EDO memory onboard and are upgradeable to 2 MB EDO. Aspire Ultimate systems are standard with the maximum 2 MB EDO memory. Order the video upgrade kit from Acer Access P/N 91.AA994.001.

Cache Upgrade

The system ships with either 256k (Personal Solution Systems) or 512k (Ultimate Multimedia Systems) Pipeline Burst Cache soldered to the motherboard and is not upgradeable.
