It has only some shared video memory onboard, so it won't be replacing.
The information i can find tells that the motherboard features an AGP-port, so you can just buy an AGP video card and place put it in the agp port on your computer.

    AGP is a port on your motherboard. You'll have to open your computer.
    Take a look at this image. As indicated the port on top is the AGP (it's not always the same color). *********** also contains several PCI ports (he ports in the middle).
    There are also some graphics card for PCI-port, but AGP is a port only for graphics, and it is a faster connection than PCI.

    You can use PCI-port for graphics card, yeah.
    But you need to buy a PCI-card then.
    If you are not experienced, you might want to ask someone who has done it before, because you don't want to scratch you motherboard. Probably there is someone you know who has some experience with it. Anyway, be careful!

    Hope this was of help.

My batt went dead and I did not record my bios settings. My computer is an E-machine w2646

You should be able to either download a replacement disk or request one from the manufacturer. I think that or ebay is your best bet. Since that is not a new computer it may be tuff to get the disks.
