If it is the exact same board (and I can't stress enough how important the word EXACT is) then Gateway must have the original ROM file on the website (where you got the upgrade ROM).
Do you still have the old motherboard? That is the safest, surest way to compare the 2 part numbers.
I don't still have the old motherboard, but I did compare not only part numbers, but the layout such as the amount of capacitors, the positioning of the SATA and RAM slots, and so on. It was the same as the old one.
I did flash the BIOS with secondary graphics card in the PCI-E 16x slot, would that have something to do with what I am experiencing?

I dont know if this will help you but thought it worth mentioning.
I have an ASUS M4A785-M MB and an AMD Phenom II x4 950 Black Edition Deneb 3.0 MHz Socket AM3 processor and recently upgraded to an HD 6950 video card. When I installed the CCC for the new video card, I lost the two onboard monitors.
Long story short, I re-installed my Windows 7 using the upgrade option and regained the onboard monitors.
But then wouldn't I at least be able to use the monitors using a Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS Live USB if I installed CCC and nVidia drivers
(which I have tried)?
