After I reinstalled the windows 7 I installed the VGA package from the above link of Gateway site and I now just see the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter under display adapter -

The driver is available at the Gateway NV53 support site.

Simply download and install the ATI driver.

Windows simply did not have a driver and used a generic VGA one.

That's what I installed before and still I have Standart VGA Graphics Adapter – URL87 Feb 6 '13 at 17:10
righ click on the VGA adapter, select properties -> driver and update the driver. Now point to the path where the setup extracts the tempoary files (C:\AMD) – magicandre1981 Feb 6 '13 at 19:27
