Two issues here. Windows 7 may not support the onboard video card and never will. Gateway has been using proprietary hardware on the their systems and because it is XP based it will not support being upgraded by to an new O/S because of no support. You should be able to get a good video card and go away from the onboard card. Windows 7 and even more so Windows 8 are graphics intensive and will require more ram than the older onboard cards can supply.
