It appears that you have a faulty graphics card.
If the graphics card is integrated with the motherboard then it cannot be repaired. Just purchase a new AGP graphics card, insert it into the AGP slot and connect your monitor to this card.
You may need to go to the BIOS setup to disable the on-board graphics card.
If you don't have an integrated graphics card, then buy a replacement graphics card.
You will need to install the new graphics drivers after installing the graphics card.

You can. Just make sure it's compatible with the same processor, RAM etc...or it may cost you more in the long run.
You can bring that spec into the local computer store, ask them to just either replace or upgrade...make sure you tell them you'd like to use the same processor, RAM etc.
I hope that helps.

It sounds to me like the power switch is plugged into the motherboard incorrectly. I would need to know the type of motherboard you have to get you the proper schematic for hooking up the power switch and reset switch to the board. If you have the manual to the motherboard, there should be a detailed picture showing you how it is to be hooked up. Please let me know the motherboard model for further assistance.

Let me look around for you.
The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel. The area of pins on the motherboard that the wires from the Front Panel attach to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes there are two Front Panel headers.
This information may be tough to find.
What is needed is the manufacturer name and model number, off of the motherboard.
There were several different motherboard manufacturers used, and several different variations.
I'm going to post two links that may help you with identifying the motherboard manufacturer, and model number.
Look in the middle of the motherboard, around the edges, and in-between any expansion slots on the motherboard, for identifying nomenclature.
Going further, there is a motherboard chipset on the motherboard.
The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.
The Northbridge chip will be covered with an aluminum finned Heatsink. It's identifying model number/letters will be covered.
The Southbridge chip usually does not have a Heatsink. It's model number/letters will be easily identifiable.
The Northbridge chip and Southbridge chip are installed in a mated pair.
A specific Southbridge chip will be used with a specific Northbridge chip.
This means that identifying what Southbridge chip is used will lead us to what Northbridge chip is used, without removing the Heatsink off of the Northbridge chip.
This shows you a motherboard diagram, detailing how the motherboard chipset is connected to the rest of the motherboard,
This general example of an average motherboard shows you the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip,
Looking in the middle of the motherboard you will note a bl;ack square Heatsink that looks like a meat tenderizer.
This is the Heatsink over the Northbridge chip.
To the left of the Northbridge chip, and to the left of the ram memory slots, is the Southbridge chip.
It has VIA on it in white letters.
State any identifying letter/numbers that you see on the motherboard.
Please state in a Comment.
