The 507GR had onboard video - so when you insert a new card you will have to deactivate the onboard video in Device Manager.

As regards the replacement card - any modern card will work fine, what you need to know though is whether your motherboard has an AGP riser or will accept PCI cards.

I have been told that PCI Express graphics cards are preferred over AGP cards, but I don't know why.

Good luck.

Yes, your computer specifically supports:

PCI Express 16x and
PCI Express 1x

The 16x is the long one and the 1x is the reallly short one. Most likely the card that you get will fit the big slot. Be careful not to upgrade too high though, because if you do you may have to upgrade your power supply as well. Ask someone at gateway or a local shop for a recommended card for your system.

What is the market value of a Gateway 507GR computer?


Neither could I ... this computer is discontinued ... It is unusual that there are none to be found at eBay nor Craig's List, no rfurbs at any of the usual sites. Since you can't find it and I can't find it ... it is difficult to come up with a 'fair market value' for this discontinued product.

Here are the computer specs ... http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/4658/4658sp3.shtml

I am not sure how 'mint condition' applies in this case ...

I think you will need to add memory to this machine ... does it come with an OS? Is it running now? Can you check the Microsoft Hardware compatbility list at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx

Here is an interesting site ... http://www.retrevo.com/search?q=Gateway+507GR&rt=oa&modelid=7784763 On their review section, they say this computer is over the hill ready to retire.


If I were interested in this computer, I would offer $100.00 but not go more than $150.00. I think this is very generous.

Gateway 507gr power issues...


Unplug the four-pin 12V ATX cable from the motherboard, and see if that makes it power up any better - it probably still won't work entirely, but see if it gets your cooling fans spinning. If so, you probably have a bad motherboard, with something shorting out the 12V power.

3 long beeps (keyboard?) and no video. Tried a second keyboard, same result. Keyboards work with other machine.


This information will help you out on the POS beep codes.

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
i suspect that its not on the keyboard but if you have keyboard card, thats the problem . Try to check your motherboard if it beeps without any memory.
If it beeps then probably your motherboard is ok. Try to change your video card if you have an extra, but dont buy yet, unless you already proved that your video card works.
