Try downloading from ATI instead of Gateway.
Here's a blurb you could try:
Do a CLEAN install of the video drivers as follows
- Go to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers.
- Download Driver Cleaner PE (2.5MB) from here and place it on your desktop.
- Uninstall your display drivers via the Windows control panel (only the display drivers!!) then reboot into Safe Mode.
- Once in safe mode, open Driver Cleaner, click 'Tools' and select 'Cab Cleaner', click 'Start' and wait till it's finished. When finished click 'Close', next select your make of graphics card in the drop down box and click 'Start'.
Once finished, reboot into normal windows mode.
- Install your new drivers. DO NOT let Windows do it for you via the wizard, cancel the wizard and double click your driver file that you downloaded.
