Question about Gateway GM5084 PC Desktop
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.
