Gateway DX4831 with Video Card

I just bought a Gateway DX4831 with on board graphics. After upgrading the PSU to 450w, I installed an XFX HD4650 ATI video card. I have reseated the card a few times. There are no power connectors on the card. The card has power because the on card fan runs, but the card is not recognized by the BIOS so I can't disable the onboard graphics. What am I missing?

OK, is it in Device manager? Have you installed the latest Catalyst Drivers, in fact the FULL pack? Try "Cleaning" the Gold Fingers on the card. There aren't jumpers on the MB, that need moving are there? Are you able to prove the card in another machine?

You can try a different card in the slot. This will rule out if the card is defective. If the same thing happens with another card then you know the board or perhaps another thing is causing the issue.

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"

I have dell gx 260 with 2.4 ghz nd 1gb ddr ram with nvidia geforce fx 5200 can u name any graphics card which will be gud enough than geforce 5200...nd agp plz..


You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:


1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4914257&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology



3) Best: HIS HD4670

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6076197&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

No bootup when installing a Geforce 6200 PCI-e


Check how card is attached to PCIx16 port right?

It should be that one. Check connections, this problem is usually caused by not propperly attached card ,or outdated version of bios.

I bought an Ultra LSP 650w power supply (upgrade) for my HP a1150y and it won't even boot up (fans come on & thats it). If I put the old 300w (oem) PSU in the PC, it works but it won't meet the power...


if thats wat the specs say then thats most probably the max youve just bought one thats to powerfull, and y did you need so much power the most powerfull graphics card in the world needs a 750watt power surpply, your computer is probably not designed to have major upgrades, and by looking at the specs i can see that your computer well putting it simply is **** for upgrading the specs are **** (no offense intended) i suggest upgrading to a whole new computer if you want that sought of power and graphics

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
