The integrated video card means your video card is on the mainboard. If your Graphic Card is faulty you need to replace the mainboard which will be costly! The Hard Drive(HDD) is the device where your Operating System(OS) & data are stored. Replacing the HDD will not fix the the problem.

Hope it helps.

Video card not working


You need to re flow the solder under the BGA GPU chip. The GPU overheated and the solder has melted. A very specialized operation!

My Gateway Laptop I reload windows xp on it and the display card isn't working what do i do.


Hi,

I suggest that you go to gateways website and download the driver for your video card. It would not function properly without it. If you give me the notebook's graphic card model and manufacturer as well as your notebook's, I can find the driver for you.

I need a new graphics card for my GATEWAY 4530GZ Laptop.


Hi,
The gateway system that you have has integrated video card on the motherboard. You would not be able to put in add on graphics card on the motherboard. As here is no place for it.
The alternative solution could be to purchase a PCMCIA Type II graphics card , that goes into the PCMCIA slot.

Frankly speaking this would not be a cost effective resolution. it would be good to invest in a new laptop instead.

Thanks for using fixya

Can't run a PC game, but its properly installed.


Chances are the desktop PC had a video accelerator and the laptop didnt. Laptops have integrated video cards that share the systems processor and memory to do its work. Video accelerators have their own dedicated CPU and memory and take the video work away from the system. A video accelerator with say 64 to 128 mb of video memory may have a 250 to 300 mhz CPU on the card. This means the system can dedicate the full 1.5 GHz and 512 mb of memory to the game. Integrated video cards like this one will give up about a third of its memory AND half of its processing power to run your game. In essence, the laptop is SLOWER than the desktop when playing the game. If the laptop is running Vista, then the slowdown is even greater.

Gateway GT4016 new video card not detected


Dude,

Its not entirely gateways fault but to some extent it is. What you need to do is:

1. check in bios if it has an option to switch from agp to pci for video if you got it switch it

go to safe mode uninstall the previous device reboot and see if the new one is getting detected or not

if its not auto detected try force installation from the cd

let me know how it goes

Video card


You do not give a reason for wanting to add a video card to this laptop, whether the video is not working or you just want to upgrade. I just looked at Gateway's support site and it appears the video that is standard with your laptop and motherboard is an integral part of the motherboard and cannot be replaced or upgraded.

Monitor on laptop rolling screen syatem check says monitor is fine


Hi gooby,

Video card - reseat card and boot to see if fixed or has gone bad. If your video card is integrated, then the system board needs replacing.

Monitor screen - need to replace.

One thing you can try is to re-install the video drivers. If this does not work, then the only thing that can be done is replacing the parts formentioned.
