Open the desktop and wherever the monitor plugs into just follow that on the desktop. It will either be onboard video (on the motherboard) or a separate card.

Either way you can always change the video card.

You just need to make sure it's AGP 8x

That's what your board supports.

Best of luck!

I have a tower that's gateway and I have an aftermarket video card installed (Nvidia Geforce GT220) and i want to run dual mopnitors....one of the internal video and the other off the GeForce. both cards...


I don't think It's possible. Normally the Graphics card over rides the onboard Video. You would have to get another Graphics card with duel video ports.

Why does my GM5420 Tower start up, but doesn't Read/Register screen?


I am not familiar with Gateway machines but this should work for most computers. You will have do some reading up. Yes it's probably a VGA (15 pin D-sub) the connector is often blue but can be any colour)

If your mouse/k-b etc are wireless they may need fresh batteries.

It may be the graphics facilities on your computer are u/s. It's quite awkward to solve this problem because you can't see what you are doing. You might try drivers for the monitor you are using (do not pay for these and be careful to void websites which are sources of adware or other malware) though this is unlikely as basic graphics are supplied in the BIOS

Try "gateway" support, or the "gateway" or other computer forums.

Read this http://www.pcguide.com/vb/showthread.php?70528-Upgrading-Video-Card-on-Gateway-GM5420

If there is a peripheral graphics card and your machine has on board graphics / video enter the BIOS (read up) and choose on - board video.

Try a graphics card (or on-board, or a different one known to work - see one of the many articles on how to set up a graphics card) Borrow one.

Essentially my course of action is try an alternative graphics facility to the one you have at the time of your post.

(Ihave just looked at the specification for this model at http://www.cnet.com/products/gateway-gm5420-core-2-duo-e6300-1-86-ghz-2-gb-320-gb/specs/
and it has on board Intel graphics default. Assuming the hasn't been an graphics 'upgrade' on your PC

You might find this webpage helpful (it has a troubleshooting section in the service manual)

Installed a new graphic cards for Gateway DX4710-UB801A, it works for a day, but the next day, it wouldn't turn on, the power supply is not running.


Pull the new graphics card out to see if the power supply will start up, if no change, you will need a new power supply module.

When i turn my ATXAEG on the green light comes on but will not do anything


Sub out your ram one at a time and test, if you find one bad stick it will in some cases shut the computer down, next unplug hard drive and test, if no change you may have a bad video graphics card, unplug if possible! if system come back you know the graphics card is the problem, if none of these help the motherboard is the likely issue.

Horizontal lines come in the monitor I replce the monitor thinking thats the problembut no the horxontal line keeps coming back do I need to replace the tower?


Hi,

There is a possibility of your system RAM being faulty as the Nvidia on board graphics card uses this to display the picture.

You can one fit a PCI Express graphics card which will fix the problem or two replace the faulty RAM module.

Hope this helps.

Im trying to disable the on board graphics card so i can install then new on i just bought. i have a gateway GT4024 and the onboard graphics card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series


Your board has ATI integerated graphics, no need to remove. You would upgrade by adding a PCIe express card in slot. Do you have such a card? If you need installation instructions, let me know at "add a comment"

Ive looked and looked and my gf really needs to upgrade her graphics but i cant find a solution to this she is using a sx2803 gateway and its a mini tower and we need something to fit in it please anyone...


Since the Gateway SX2803 is a mini tower, you will most likely want to use a 'low-profile' video card. These cards are built short, so they can fit in smaller cases. You can find a fair selection here: http://bit.ly/eOfvmg

As for what /type/ of card, you should be able to determine what type of expansion slot(s) your computer has from the user manual, or by opening the case. I know the Gateway SX2803 25e has a free PCIe x16 slot.

I tried to upgrade my 614GE Gateway from 512 Mb to 2 Gb, the system indicates I only have 960 Mb, I orded another set and now the system will not turn on, I swaped the old and new now I have 1.43 Gb, what...


Hi,

First make sure you have the right modules (DDR 1 or 2 and the speed 400mhz or something similar).
Then when you insert the new modules, does the computer beep?
Of not then you ok, if it gives you al log beep there is a memory error.
And if you have a integrated GPU it takes some memory for its own use.
Or maybe the computer cannot handle 2GB.

Hope this helps!

I added a new video card and the monitor wont come on


1) Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

(Hey, happens! Sometimes in our zealousness to see what that baby will do, we mess up a little)

2) Did you install the Drivers? First?

These will be on the installation disk that comes with the graphics card.
Recommend installing the software from the disk FIRST, then turn the computer off, unplug from power, install the graphics card.

3) Does the graphics card require additional power?

Some graphics cards will not receive enough power, from the graphics expansion slot they are inserted into.

[Gateway GM5084 uses a PCI Express x16 slot, for best graphics.

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009054/1009054nv.shtml

(Left-click on Specifications]

Some powerful graphics cards require additional power cables from the Power Supply.

Monitors wont work


It appears that you have a faulty graphics card.
If the graphics card is integrated with the motherboard then it cannot be repaired. Just purchase a new AGP graphics card, insert it into the AGP slot and connect your monitor to this card.
You may need to go to the BIOS setup to disable the on-board graphics card.
If you don't have an integrated graphics card, then buy a replacement graphics card.
You will need to install the new graphics drivers after installing the graphics card.
