The graphics are not replaceable as far as I can tell from the spec at gateway. Graphics are usually embedded ( soldered on) on laptops as there is not a lot of space inside the case. So It is either New Mainboard or Laptop. As far as I can see the mainboard is available as a spare.

Sounds like the card is failing. Suggest your replace it or borrow one from someone just to see if it is the card. Does not sound like a driver issue. Check that the fan is not clogged with dust or noisy. this would cause the card to overheat and the result is what you are getting.

What video cards are compatable


This computer comes with a Nvidia FX5200 so this tells me that it can support any AGP8X Graphics Card.

Here is a list of compatible GeForce cards for this PC's.
GeForce 6 Series - (GeForce 6200, GeForce 6600GT, GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 LE)
GeForce FX Series - (GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900, GeForce FX 5900 XT, GeForce, GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, GeForce FX 5700, GeForce FX 5700LE, GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce FX 5500)
GeForce 4 Series - (GeForce 4 Ti and GeForce 4 MX)GeForce 3 Series - (GeForce 3, GeForce 3 Ti 500 and GeForce 3 Ti 200)
GeForce 2 Series - (GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce 2 Ti, GeForce 2 Pro, GeForce 2 GTS and GeForce 2 MX series)
GeForce 256 Series - (All)

Here is a list of compatible ATI/AMD cards for this PC's.
ATI Radeon X Series - (ATI Radeon X1050, ATI Radeon X1300, ATI Radeon X1550, ATI Radeon X1600 and ATI Radeon X1650)
ATI Radeon 9xxx Series - (ATI Radeon 9550)


You should already have a GeForce FX5200 so better than that is the 6600 and 6600GT.

I have a Gateway P-7811-FX and I had crashing issues myself. Two things.....try to find a series of drivers for the video but download several of themnot just the newer ones and experiment. Secondly, These laptops do not do a great job cooling without some help. Update the BIOS if you haven't already and put a 17" laptop cooler under the laptop....get a good one and don't go cheap, a good cooler will halt most of your crashes. I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and Far Cry 2 on max settings now with no issues.

My laptop is very hot


Hi!
Sounds like your beating the stuffing out of your laptop? Have you tried a Usb cooling pad and also siteing the Laptop in a cool breathable area?
I had a collegue with the same problem although he was using it in the Laptop bag (Silly Billy) on a four fanned cool pad and well happy!
Good Luck!
