Re: graphics card removal
Unplug your computer, open the CPU and remove the old graphics card (the one where you attach your monitor cable) and replace with your new graphics card. Handle the card by the edges and avoid touching the sensitive electrical components. Insert it fully to the card slot (a loose video card will prevent your monitor from working). Once the computer prompts you that you need the driver for it, just insert the CD that comes with the model of your new graphics card and follow the directions.

If you are certian the pc is powered on, check the video card and any new card that has been added to the pc. If you have a video card installed, remove all other cards and retry your boot. If you still have no video, replace the card. If the video connection is on the board and you and have added a new video card, use the "old" connection to open your operating system and configure the video setting to use the new card and change connection.

as you already have 3GB ram, you can play most of the gaming now, but to play HD games, you have to buy a good Graphic Accelerator card (GAC), to see few options in GAC , check this link...http://www.gpureview.com/ thanks for rating
If the existing graphics card works with your new monitor, there isn't need to upgrade the graphics card unless you have a specific need such as a graphics intensive games program that doesn't work with the old graphics card.
First you MUST install Service Pack Two. That "device cannot start", it simply means that the "Drivers" will NOT load... but this is really of NO consequence, IF the "Generic" Windows Drivers work, then this is just as good, and in some case better than any other driver, PLUS they WORK. Have you downloaded the latest NVIDIA Drivers? Also you may have to install the entire Drivers Package and not just the "Drivers" alone. That NVIDIA card is an "Older" card, you may indeed be better off with a new more modern card, now NVIDIA, is OK, but I personally like ATI better.
I assume by power is good you mean when you press the power button on the pc it spins up.
1) unplug all the components such as hard drive, floppy and USB from the motherboard. (so you should only have the VGA, monitor and motherboard with RAM and CPU.) turn it on and see if you get a screen. if you don't there is possibly a problem with the motherboard.
if you do get some display on the screen 2) switch off and plug in one component at a time and then switch back on. if it works turn it off and plug in the next component and turn it back on. repeat until you find the faulty component that cause it to not turn on.
