Question about Gateway E-4000 PC Desktop
My computer has no 3d capability and can not support google earth im having trouble finding a half height video card - the gateway e 4000 does not allow for regular size cards because of the height of the cpu cover is too short _is there an external solution ?
Yes you will need a half height AGP graphics card for that tower. You can purchase such card from places like eBay or Amazon. I suggest you get something over 128MB. Click on the link below for an idea.
Good luck and regards.

Yes it does have an AGP slot, which you can confirm easily by looking at the motherboard. The AGP slot would be found at the top of the available slots and is brownish in color and slight smaller than the several white PCI slots.
As for what card to put in, that depends on your budget and needs.
If you're a gamer, spend as much as you can and go with a N-Vidia based AGP card.

SOURCE: video card for the gateway 507gr
The 507GR had onboard video - so when you insert a new card you will have to deactivate the onboard video in Device Manager.
As regards the replacement card - any modern card will work fine, what you need to know though is whether your motherboard has an AGP riser or will accept PCI cards.
I have been told that PCI Express graphics cards are preferred over AGP cards, but I don't know why.

1. open your cabinet.
2. remove the battery form the motherboard.
3. wait 15 seconds and then replace the battery again.
4. connect your screen to the pci ex card.
now it should work.

SOURCE: Upgrade video card
Any of the cards here are suitabl,e with almost all under $100 and are all PCI Express x 16
Your mobo is not suitable for the PCI X 2.0
Remember the amount of memory on the video card comes from your available ram - so you need to consider this when buying if you dont have much ram.
If you need more help deciding let me know
