Hi.

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.

SOURCE: Video card upgrade

Relevant link

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.

Please rate this as solved once you've read it, unless you have further questions, then post another comment.
Thanks!

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.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Motherboard - disable onboard graphics

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.

This is a well known issue with gateway media centre and there is no easy solution for this problem. If you are an expert in tearing apart the system and putting it back, then this LInk has some options which have worked to many people.

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.

USB 3.0 upgrade


You might need to upgrade you graphics card.

USB 3.0 is the newest connection port upgrade, arriving on the market in 2010.
The cable port connection is far superior to the USB 2.0 port, as it is able to transport up to 5 gbps (gigabits per second), instead of the previous version's max speed of 480 mbps (megabits per second).

However, most computers do not yet have this connection port installed, in which case you are left to upgrade your own computer system to the newer, faster connection method.

Turn off your computer, then disconnect all of the cables running into the computer.
Remove the Phillips screws from the back side of the computer.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.

This unlocks the case, allowing you access to the interior of the system.
Slide open the computer case.

Inside the middle is a longer circuit board.
This is the motherboard of the computer.

On the back side of the motherboard, facing the rear of the computer, are PCI card slots.
These allow you to install additional hardware onto the computer.

Slide the USB 3.0 connection port into one of the open PCI card slots, then push down the plastic levers along each side of the slot to lock the card into place.

Close the computer cover, then tighten the Phillips screws and reattach the cables.
Power on the computer, then insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer.

Once the installation wizard loads, follow the prompts of the wizard to install the drivers.
Restart the computer once finished and the USB 3.0 connection ports are ready for use.

Compatible graphics cards for Gateway Computers

Just as a processor handles data and a sound card outputs sound, your computer's video card is responsible for processing graphics and displaying them on your monitor.

The video cards manufacturers build into computers typically have enough power for the average user, but it may be necessary to upgrade your video card for better performance in games or graphics heavy applications.

Understand which types of video cards are compatible with your Gateway computer and learn about all your options.
PCI Express Graphics Cards

Many newer Gateway computers have a Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express slot in which you can add any PCI Express compatible video card.

These devices range from budget cards suitable for everyday tasks to high end models for gaming that cost hundreds of dollars.

AGP Graphics Cards

Older Gateway computers likely have an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) slot for AGP compatible cards.

The AGP bus provides sufficient bandwidth for high performance graphics cards, but the technology is no longer in use and AGP cards are difficult to find.

PCI Video Cards

Nearly all Gateway computers should have at least one PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot regardless of age.

This slot has enough bandwidth to support a wide range of peripherals like sound cards and modems, but is not suitable for high end video cards.

You can find a number of low and mid-range cards for PCI slot computers, however.

USB Video Cards

USB video cards are also compatible with Gateway computers sporting USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports.

These external cards sit outside the computer and allow you to connect additional monitors to your system.

They are a good option for people who feel uncomfortable working inside computers.

Upgrade My Video Card on My Gateway Desktop

Gateway desktops are affordable computers, but they often do not come with top-of-the-line video cards.
Computer games may run slowly or not at all on your Gateway desktop.

One way to solve this problem is to upgrade the video card.
Video cards come in PCI, PCI-E and AGP interfaces, so you should be able to find a video card upgrade no matter what Gateway desktop model you have.

Click "Start" and right-click "My Computer."
Select "Properties" from the menu that appears.

Go to the "Hardware" tab.
Choose "Device Manager."

Click the plus sign next to the Device Manager entry listed "Display Adapters."
Find your graphics card in this list.

Double-click it.
Go to the "Drivers" tab and click "Uninstall Drivers."

Click "OK" to confirm the uninstallation process.
Shut your Gateway desktop down.

Pull the power cable out of the back.
Look at the back of the Gateway computer tower for screws on the right side panel or on top of the case for a cover release handle.

Need agp video card


buy one generally off craigslist or ebay, since its a gateway and doesn't have a very big power supply you're going to be limited in you're choices of video cards. Generally a geforce 7300 agp would be a good choice for budget minded.

What video card would be compatable with a insignia computer model d300?


I would recommend any of the Nvidia or ATI video cards that come in the PCI format. Your computer only has PCI slots. These are the older slot types, so your options will be limited for brand new cards, but there's still plenty out there. As long as the slot type is PCI and the chipset is a major manufacturer, it should work with no problem. Do NOT get any video card that says "PCI Express" or "PCI-X" - they won't fit.

When i try 2 starting IGI game....a problem popon up.... ''d3d driver with hardware acceletor not found'' give me solution.... anurag yadav... anu_infoleon@yahoo.com


Either you do not have a graphics card with 3d capability or you don't have the driver installed. To find out goto start > Settings > Control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager > Click plus on display adapters. Either google the driver listed there or post it here as a comment and you can find out if it has 3d capability. If you don't have a 3d able card many motherboards allow the addition of a 3d graphics card as an upgrade.

I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V
