After the side of the case is opened and the computer unpluged and the video to the monitor unplugged, if it has a card already installed , remove the screw holding the card down then pull the old card straight up out of the card slot. Align the new card that you purchased , pushing it straight down into the slot. Install the hold down screw. Reinstall the side . Install the software after hooking  the computer and monitor up.   If you don;t jknow which type of card ,down load a manual and maybe even further instructions from the weblink I provided.

Below it the Gateway support center for your model. All you have to do is to put in your 22 digit serial number.

Why my hp is not able to run need for speed most wanted


From what I ca see you need to upgrade your video card. The software's minimum requirement for NVidia is a GeForce 8800GT or higher. The minimum for an ATI card is RADEON 3870. Your machine comes with wither an NVidia 8400GS or an ATI RADEON 2400.

Where can I buy an upgrade for the video graphics card on the pc shown on the picture


So you are using a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 at the moment. If you are looking to upgrade your Video Card you will need to make sure your Power supply can support the card, and *********** board. Please follow this link to find out how much you want to spend, and what video card you can get:

It will run but if you want smooth full graphics you will need to get a better video card. of course 4 gigs of ram is better then 2 but if you are running 32 bit windows then you are stuck with a max of 3 gigs of ram.

I would like to upgrade the graphics.


Yes, if you are running onboard video, and have an open PCI Express slot (or two), you can go out and get yourself a better video card. I would recommend getting sticking with ATI or Nvidia chipset cards, made by a company with a decent warranty. Lots of manufacturers make cards that use the Nvidia or ATI chipsets, but saving $10 isn't worth the headache if/when it blows up. I personally like the GeForce 200 series (240,250,280,295,etc..) or the slightly older 9800GT series cards. All of these are available in 512MB and 1024MB versions, and should all work fine with your system.

Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

I need to upgrade the video and Memory on my SX280 Dell lunchbox


According to nVidia the 8500 is a PCI expressX16 card and designed for hight speed DDR2 and GDDR3 memory.

I don't think you'll have any problem adding 2X 1GB memory affecting the power supply but check the tech specs on the card for fit in your case.
Let me know if this helps
