Question about XFX GeForce FX 5200, Graphic Card
Hi, Thermal even is overheating - clean the machine from dust - possibly take it to a local repair shop to be fixed, possibly a heatsink might need to be replaced, wont cost much. check that all fans are spinning. Most likely covered in dust if the case has been closed for over 4 years.
The issue is not the computer monitor, don't replace it since its not the problem.
Either the cpu, mainboard or video card is overheating - thermal event. not a big problem. won't cost much to fix

The best way to do is to try another LCD monitor. I'm not saying that you buy a new one, just try another one or maybe from your friend for troubleshooting purposes only.
Are you using a seperate VGA card or PCI-e video card? or the computer is using the built-in vcard?
