It is going to be hard to replace the exact graphics card due to its age. Your best bet is to replace it with another graphics card that is compatible with your motherboard. The good news is many cards should be compatible with your board since there are very few connection types available.
Post which motherboard you have or simply do a search for what type of graphics card type/connection it accepts. I believe it will be a PCI or PCI Express type card. To make it easiest on yourself make sure the new card you buy has the type of monitor cables you would like to use.
There are really only 3 types it could use and most likely it will use a VGA (blue smallish cable that only accepts pins) and/or DVI (White longer connection with a square and pins).
If monitor is on it could be (1. the screen cable is faulty .(2 then screen cable is not plugged in, or you have installed a graphics card and connected it to the on board and not the graphics card.If its connected to the motherboard or the graphics card and is not coming on then your graphics card or onboard is shot.If onboard is shot buy a graphics card and install it or replace graphics card.
System Ram doesn't count for Gpu ram so 2 gig Ram and 2 gig Gpu will be fine .. check also Psu some Gpu are hungry for power Mine is Gtx770 8 pin + 8pin at 240watts.. hence 750 watt Flower power Psu...
Nope it isn't defective. You don't mention from your question if you bought a LCD type or the CRT type of monitor. But I think you bought a LCD monitor right? My question here is where do you connect it? From the graphic card or in the onboard vga of your motherboard? How old is your graphic card/onboard vga? That is always the problem of an old graphic card because it can't release more pixels that's why it says out of range. Connect your old monitor it will work because it can support your graphic card/onboard vga. Buy a new graphic card with a specification that will suit to your motherboard and to your new monitor before it become a money waste
If you already check your connections and still no answer from what you're doing, do these steps:
check for any beep codes
remove and reinsert your RAM to another memory slot, if it works you have a problem with your RAM, you'll need to buy a new RAM that is compatible with your motherboard
if you here a 1 short beep, that means it already start the booting sequence of your computer but you don't see any boot screen and still the out of range error. You have a defective graphic card.
Is your monitor is a LCD type? if your answer is yes that means your monitor is not compatible with your old graphic card, buy a new graphic card that is compatible with your motherboard and to your LCD monitor. Because old graphic cards or onboard vga cannot hold much more pixels than newer ones that's why you have an out of range error
Chances are high that it's your video drivers messing up. Try installing the graphic card drivers from one of the CDs you got with your computer, if you don't have those anymore you can download them from the official site of the graphics card manufacturer.
If you don't know how to find out which graphic card you have, let me know and i'll try to help out.
You can buy a video card and use it on this board. You need to buy a video card with a PCI connection.
If you are planning on buying a new motherboard, I would not go and buy a video card. The newer boards use a PCI Express 2.0 X16 connection and you would be better off buying a newer card to accompany that new motherboard
your computer seems to be too slow to fully function with the game. you may need to update your graphics card or buy a decent graphics card if its built into the motherboard.
be careful of which graphics card to buy, there are a lot of them on the market that are useless
Just a suggestion for you to try. This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not. The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express. Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit. Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.
You can fix this problem simply by pulling the computer out, then looking for a blue vertical port (if you don't have a graphics card) or a blue Horizontal port (if you do have a graphics card, which is usually located at the bottom of the computer.)
Count the pins on the cable then count the pins on the port.
The end of the monitor cable should be Male which are pins only and the port should be Female which are slots where the pins go.
Make sure that the sides of the cable matches the sides of the port (which is a upward angle)
