Yes, i have the same pc. I bought a 256mb ATI radeon 9250 ($100 at that time - probably a lot less now) about 2 years ago, i didn't know which slot I had. Either PCI or AGP, i bought the AGP and it didn't fit, so I exchanged it for the PCI, installed and fits perfectly. Therefore, I'm pretty sure that a 128mb card would work. I still get lag here and there and i can't watch HD videos. I'm a gamer, so my conclusion for my standard is to upgrade to the 512mb Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT, which might set u back $290-$300. (8500-8600 are pretty good too)

I think I need a display card for my Presario V5000WM laptop. I think this because it makes 2 long beeps, 4 short beeps, & then 2 long beeps. Is this correct?

Can I upgrade my graphics card for my Gateway NV59C41U laptop?

Yes here is a link to a nifty way to have an external PCI Express slot on your laptop where you can add any PCI Express Video Card! :)

If you have 4GB of ram then you need to have a 64 bit processor or you will have a 4GB cap with the video card ram and the ram installed I believe.

Good luck and have fun :)

Im looking for drivers that can upgrade it from 16mb to 64 mb


Unfortunately you can not upgrade your "NVIDIA Vanta LT 16 MB AGP" Graphic card from 16 MB to 64 MB by installing or upgrading the driver.

It comes in 4-16 MB configurations and the max video memory is 16 MB for that type of graphic card.

You have to buy new graphic card which is capable 64 MB memory.

Hope this helps.

One long beep tow short beep

One long beep and two short beeps mean faulty video adapter.

If you are using a card, like a PCI or AGP video adapter then remove and put back the card in slot.

If you have a motherboard, then the video chipset on motherboard had gone, buy an agp video adapter and insert it in the slot inside your computer to fix the problem.

below an example of PCI and AGP video card:

MSI G4MX4000-T64 64 MB Graphics Card

HP Intel DVI AGP digital display card

ATI Rage 128 Pro 32 MB PCI Graphics Card
