I want to wipe my gt5692 and it say it have a recovry bilit in if so how do u use it


If you want to wipe it, then ignore the recovery feature. Most often, this is simply to repair an existing Windows installation. Using the recovery option will not save your programs or settings anyway. Just re-install Windows and your drivers from scratch.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck

Upgrade the existing graphics card. GEForce 4 MX440


Yes you can upgrade the card. For information regarding video card refer to website belwo

You can purchase teh AGP video card for the computer with higher memory.

Currently your video card is with 64Mb, try for 512MB or higher version. Do not go for PCI Express or PCI video card. The computer will support only AGP.
