Okay first things first make sure you have unlocked the card from the case. Most Gateways have a card lock on it. Once it is unlocked just pull the card out, sometimes they are hard to pull out but you can get a small screw driver and pry up at the case side and slowly work it out.

Hope this helps.

Replacing video card


Remove the power cord, remove the case, find an open PCI Slot to place the new video card. You don't replace the video card that is on the motherboard.

Video is out, on GT5228 Tried new monitor, do not seem to have the right type of video card to install a secondary card assume that it is the motherboard. How do I verify


if video card does have a hdmi-output, try this one plus fitting monitor.
no sign?
to blindtest the mainboard, remove the RAMs,
if it gives bleeping sound, it is still functioning.
when booting up, listen if the harddisk or cd-rom drive still makes any sound.
if it is the video card, then computer might hang up here while booting, video device is always checked first, so if it gets stuck here, you won't be able to tell until you've doublechecked with another (AGP?)video-card, iam afraid...

How do I change the video card in my 610XL PC?


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.

Need to replace video card


It would be the card that your monitor plugs into. If the monitor plugs straight into the motherboard, then all you need to do is add a video card and it should automatically bypass the built in one on the motherboard. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating. :c)

System recovery for Gateway GM5048


No that should have nothing to do with it......

What I can recommend is manually installing the drivers rather then going through the entire recovery process again. All of the drivers that you would need you can find here :
