To complement Senthil Kumar's reply,

1) If you want to use png images, typeset with pdfLaTeX; there is a  
button for that in TeXmaker.

(And anyway, not like this, but \usepackage[dvips]{graphicx}.)

As Senthil Kumar said, don't use spaces; and better yet, put all your  
figures (EPS and PNG) in a single directory (say, Graphs) inside your  
working directory, and then,

\usepackage{epstopdf}         %<- To convert your EPS files to PDF
\epstopdfsetup{update,prepend}%<- This checks if your EPS file has
                               %   changed and, if so, updates the
                               %   the PDF file
\graphicspath{{./Graphs/}}    %<- Then no need to type the whole path
\caption{This is a test.}
