With AIO and laptop models, they are only made to work with one type of video card per the MFG. Below is the only video cards supported on this model of gateway: ATI Radeon HD 4570 with 512 MB DDR2 Memory ATI Radeon HD 4670 with 1 GB DDR3 Memory Without these you will not have any success.
Please follow the below steps and fix your problem.
1. Unplug nic card or modem from net or disconnect
2. Remove ATI driver from add/remove programs then remove the control panel from add/remove programs
3. Reboot into safe mode (F8 during boot up)
4. On reboot into safe mode Win XP SP1/SP2 will auto detect and install
drivers. Just let it do its thing. If you can cancel out of the auto
install hardware wizard then skip the rest and run Driver Cleaner! If
you can NOT cancel out of auto detect wizard then...
5. Navigate to device mgr->display adapter->uninstall and/or remove ATI display adapter but do not reboot
6. Disable any Anti Virus Software (If you don't disable is than it could give trouble)
7. Run Cab Cleaner (not needed, but recommended)
8. Run Driver Cleaner
9. Empty recycle bin and reboot
10. Install the new drivers and control panel
Hope the above information will be helpful to you. Thanks.
I would go the www.amd.com web site. They now own ATI and have a section for ATI products. Find the support page and then find a user's forum. Chances are someone else has already had your problem, and a solution exists, or open a problem case. It may cost you, depending on whether or not your ATI card is under warranty.
Another option you may try while you wait for a solution from the forum, or ATI, would be for you to remove all ATI software, and reinstall from the CD that came with your card.
Sorry but cant see the picture u have posted as its so small.
Whatever the spec is there shouldnt be a problem upgrading to a 8500 or even higher card. There are cards higher up in the range that are now relatively cheap and will far exceed the perfromance of the 8500 agp card.
A good and cheap upgrade would be something like a 9800xt
here are a couple of sites showing performance of cards
The main problem with a higher spec card will be wether your psu is capable of powering it. If you open the pc case up the psu should have details on the side of it. Please list what they are along with the make.
