Hi, I am not sure what to do, I was given this computer by my brother, it is made by Tiny, running XP home edition, thats all I know really.
When I tried the pc it would turn on but no moniter, tried another moniter, but still the same result, I took the graphics card out and found a nice burn mark. I am not sure of the make, but found a sticker with FX5200LP on it. I would like to get a new one but I dont know where to start. HELP!!!!!

It is a Nvidea gfx card - look here click here and then I would search ebay for a replacement

give the model no. of the pc - also look online for the connection pins of the card it is probably not the latest pci-e. If you type into google something like 'connection pins of pc graphic cards' you should be able to identify what card it is.

Definitely an AGP card as Jj posted. And yes, eBay is a good place for this sort of think, especially if you're after a bargain. G

The burn out of the card MAY have done damage to the motherboard so don't spend alot on a replacement.

You could also try your local PC shop or PC fairs. You should able to get a card for around £10 or less. Make sure it has the driver software with it ..... it may come on a floppy disk !
