Radeon Software Crimson Edition Graphics Driver Installer for Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Do you have Crimson Edition 16.11.3 Hotfix (driver)? Release date 11/9/2016

Is your driver signed?

I don't think you have to disable Secure Boot in the EUFI.

I guess you do. I didn't read the whole article. You have get into the EUFI Boot menu. Did you look there for a Secure Boot option?

there isnt one in the BIOS of this mobo

on a funny sidenote - did a factory restore wipe on my laptop (had not been done in 4 yrs) and there as an error, well long story short, I had to go to the TroubleShooting Restore page in Windows. And what was there, but the screen that had the options I needed.

so to confirm, not one single way to change any EUFI Boot options in my Gateway tower (Acer Aspire m1935 mobo)

most likely will be ordering the mobo you suggested very soon. just have to make sure the other parts I will be taking off the old mobo will work with the new one

The CPU will work. You need  DDR3 1600;DDR3 1333; DDR3 1066;DDR3 2133 RAM (up to 16GB - 8GBx2) I have the Ballistix Sport 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 1600 (Price: $43.99)

I read this... The option to disable Secure Boot becomes available when a supervisor password is set. Acer

I would get the new board too. Your specs don't show what type of RAM you have.

You need DDR3 1600;DDR3 1333; DDR3 1066;DDR3 2133 RAM

It's written on the side of the module or you could use a free small program called Speccy

I know what you mean, one reason I like ordering from Amazon is quick shipping times.

Yeah, I have Amazon Prime. It's $100.00 a year for discounts on some items, free 1, 2 or same day shipping on some items, free movies and music... well worth it.
