Yes, you can. The motherboard is equipped with a PCI-e port so you can plug in a graphics card.

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520

Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

IBM ThinkPad T42 Srceen view

The problem is the video driver, either it has been corrupted or uninstalled, that is why the display is set to standard VGA settings of 640X480 with 16 colors.
You can check this by going to the Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance and check the Adapter.

To fix this problem install the Video driver.
