Searching the web finds there's no such model.

An Acer Aspire can be either a laptop computer or a desktop computer.

Quote the specific model number found on the label on the outside of the case

If it's a desktop computer.....
- the mboard may conform to the standard mATX or ATX form factor specs (a specfic physical size, the mounting holes in standard locations), or it may be an oddball (proprietary) mboard.
- brand name system cases often have one or more one piece female connectors from the case wiring that are wired up to suit what pins are for on specific headers on the mboard - a random mboard's header(s) isn't/aren't necessarily compatible with the wiring of that/those.
A generic desktop case usually has wiring connectors that can be used with any mboard.

Do you mean X1200? What makes you think the board is bad?

If you plan on sticking with that case, you will probably have to get an exact replacement board. The Small Form Factor (SFF) case severely restricts the size & layout, plus you have a weak 220W power supply that cannot be easily upgraded due to it's size. SFF systems may look cute, but they're a nightmare when it comes to upgrading or finding replacement parts.

"The Small Form Factor (SFF) case severely restricts the size & layout, plus you have a weak 220W power supply that cannot be easily upgraded due to it's size."

As in, it's small physical size. You may not be able to buy a replacement PS with more capacity, or if you can, your choices are probably limited.

E.g.
If you installed a video card in a mboard slot, there are very few video chipsets that require so llttle power that your system having a a 220 watt PS would be okay
The mboard may not fully boot or not boot at all when you install a video card in a slot..
