Theres either a brown or white slot they are long in shape and thin so if you have a brown slot that would be a "agp" if its a white slot that would be a "pci" so open the case and look inside on  the motherboard

Dimension e310- Black screen when powering on, 1 & 2 lights blink

Generally, the 1 and 2 Diagnostic LEDs indicate a failure of a PCI expansion card.
So remove any expansion cards, see if anything changes. If it does, one of the PCI cards is suspect.
If the system has an expansion video card in the PCI-E slot, and removing the PCI cards had no effect, remove the PCI-E video card and connect to the intergrated video port (You may have to remove a black cover from the port) and see if you get video. If you do, then the Expansion video card has failed.

That could be the video chip if have on board video. I don't know if you have an AGP or PCI slot to add a new video card. The Agp is brown color and always is just one. The PCI are white, and you can have 2, 3 or 4. You can buy some cheap video cards on ebay.

Moitor went black and will not come on at all

This could for many reasons, the main ones are

  • The monitor light is burned and needs to be replaced
  • The video card slot is fried, the card it self
You can try to get a VGA Cable, connect it from your computer to an external screen, press the "Function Key" + "dual screen key" on your keyboard, if u see the screen then its the monitor lights problem.

else, try to change the video card, its slot
