I have a gateway GT5228, with no ram in it will the gateway run on one stick of ram? 1 gig or no matter what I have to put 2 sticks in???

Depends on the type of RAM it is. If it's "dual-RAM" then you need both sticks. If not then 1 stick will work fine.

Pci e video card not recognized by windows 7 32 or the bios

You must connect a monitor to it otherwise it will not be recognized (disconnect the monitor from the onboard connector before that). If you can't see anything - even the BIOS - this way eiter:
1 - the card was installed incorrectly;
2 - the card needs extra power - connect that;
3 - the card is dead.

I think graphics card is shot in my Gateway GT 5408 PC nothing but black screen.Hard drive seems to be working.I was going to replace card but the one in computer is intergrated on mother board.

Looks like your PC has PCI Express slots, one x16 and x1. So you can get a new PCI Express video card which should improve overall performance, especially gaming. It will also free up some system memory that has been shared with your on-board video. You'll have to go to BIOS and change the "Initial Display" setting and/or turn off the on-board video. I'm using the ATI Radeon HD 4350 and have no complaints.

Get a video card as was recommended by EA. You have a PCI-E slot (also known as PCI-X or PCI-Express). You should be able to find one in the $80 range at any Best Buy or Fry's that will work.

All USB ports dead....


Try removing the PCI USB Adaptor and clean the gold contact with dry brush, then place it back again. If this still doesn't work, try moving the PCI USB Adaptor into other available PCI slot.

I hope this procedure solves your problem.
