Question about Gateway E-2000 Deluxe PC Desktop

3 Answers

Video card I just bought a Gateway PC and was wondering what small form video card I could use. It has a onboard video card now. I think It takes a pci video card. I have a lot of numbers on the back of the pc. 00045-436-514-431, E-series, X08-73060, 9002426. I hope those numbers will help with the type of pc. Thank You Richard

    I'm confused, what's wrong with the installed video? Are you trying to run two monitors?

Does your case look something like this?

If so, look at the FAQ and then...
How do I remove and replace/install an AGP card in the Hornet case?

You will need a low profile card.

Just curious but why did you want to add a new video card?

One suggestion would be to check the bios and see what the shared memory size of your onboard video card is set at. And possibly increase the setting to 128mb if goes that high (allot of newer computers go even higher) 128mb is more than enough video ram for most pc functions including windows Aero support for windows vista but if your into gamming and want more video power for 3d games then of course installing a new video card would defiantly be the way to go.

And if that is the case all I need is your model number and I will look up your motherboard and let you know what type and model cards fit in that case without modifications

How to make use of my Onboard HD port for my Gateway DX4840-03c

You need to uninstall the video card drivers, then you need to enter the BIOS and set the onboard video, you might need to look around, but usually under northbridge, PCI-E, and disable or just set onboard, HDMI.

Once you do this windows will load generic, so you should be able to see the monitor, as long as the monitor has HDMI.

Then after you see the monitor working you can install your onboard graphics driver.

Would like to upgrade Gateway Desk Top 500SE to a HD video

I don't think you can't do that without some major changes. The 500SE is a small format computer. The motherboard only has 2 PCI slots so you need to match that interface. NewEgg still sells the PCI video cards but I don't think they are HD

You need a more larger power supply. The current one is a 145 watt u-ATX Form Factor; you need at least 250 watts in that form factor (size)

A better choice might be a new motherboard. Look for board with a AMD Socket 7 if you want to keep this CPU. The motherboard will need to match the size of the current one to reuse the case. It's a uATX "like" form factor (7.4" x 9.35"). Also plan on a new power supply any AGP or PCI-e video card will want more than 350 watts (for the low end cards). Getting a new computer might be worthwile.

I hope this helps.

Add on PCI-E video card doesn't work

I would check the BIOS To check the boot order preference to see if you can tell the motherboard to Force Starting up with the PCI-E Slot.

If the slot did go bad, most likely you would see the system crash instead of just automatically going back to using the onboard video card.

Video card for the gateway 507gr

Yes, your computer specifically supports:

PCI Express 16x and
PCI Express 1x

The 16x is the long one and the 1x is the reallly short one. Most likely the card that you get will fit the big slot. Be careful not to upgrade too high though, because if you do you may have to upgrade your power supply as well. Ask someone at gateway or a local shop for a recommended card for your system.
