@Evongugg - how do you add a budget video card and disable onboard video?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S with Windows Vista and Intel Pentium Processor. My computer froze and wouldn't shut down and fan kept spinning, so I googled how to fix it. I took the back off, cleaned out dust, then tried to restart it. Once I tried restarting it, the fan would run, it would have a series of 4 beeps, than fan, then 4 beeps, and so forth. I googled that too and someone said it was the memory and to try removing them. I did that and now the computer will start up but it stays at the Dell start up screen and there are blue vertical lines throughout the screen.

  1. Well, on board video is disabled by default when you plug in a new card. You've got a slot for a graphics card, so card within your budget should work.
