Usually the onboard has VGA and sometimes HDMI or DVI. If it's blue it's probably VGA.

Also I'd have to guess you're plugging into an older TV, because any modern TV or monitor uses VGA, DVI, Display Port, or HDMI. They do not have S-video. S-video is actually pretty bad, I think it's like 720p max or something.

It is possible to get VGA to S-video/RCA converter.

Does your monitor or tv only have s-video?

The onboard video is the output directly connected to your motherboard. As for a converter you need one that converts whatever that output is to whatever input you are using... obviously.

Can you be more specific about what system or motherboard you have?

Yes, if that is your motherboard it should already have a VGA output. You should just be able to plug the monitor in. It is circled in red in the picture below;

I don't see anything like that in jyjjy's picture so you must have a card installed. Take a picture please.

Its a modem card, not a graphics card. Onboard graphics is always a chip on the motherboard itself, it cannot be on a seperate card otherwise it automatically becomes a discrete graphics card.

You do not need it unless something is wrong with the motherboard's LAN.

It's a dial-up modem. Unless you are using(or might use) dial-up internet(I hope not) you can get rid of it.

i assume they don't make them like this anymore do they ??

or do they ?? I doubt many builds these days come with dial up internet cards
