Question about Computers & Internet
Usually "on board graphic card" reffers to an internal video graphics circuit intergrated into the motherboard. If your monitor's video cable plugs into a separate card, then you can replace the card. If there is no video card, then only option is to replace motherboard. Might be cheaper to buy new computer.

First of all you should check if it your graphic card is either a PCI or AGP slot and check the AGP speed of either 4x or 8x check the manual if you have one, well the PCI slot is colored white and is longer than an AGP slot which is usually colored brown. Well, take extra care in removing the card be sure to unplug the the unit before unscrewing, be sure to ground yourself with a grounding strap or simply touching the metal part of the unit before proceeding. next you will need to unscrew the graphics card, the card in which the monitor is attached. Then you will need to gently lift the card slowly forward, in the case of the AGP card you will need to pop the white tab or a that little white lock on the side before proceeding. Then install the new card on either the AGP or PCI slot. gently aligh the notches of either the PCI or AGP Graphics card with two thumbs gently push down, you can feel it when its attached and in the case of the AGP slot dont forget the notch ok:)
