Argh I am so frustrated but I can't afford a new computer atm.
I have an eMachines t5212 desktop computer. I'm not tech savvy AT ALL.
when I open the computer (like take the side piece off) it looks exactly like this picture (the picture is also the same model as mine)

I haven't had any upgrades as far as graphics card so I have the same one from the manufacturer but I rinstalled windows and now i need to install drivers for my card. Can you tell me where exactly in the picture would my card be located? (so I can inspect it in person). CNET said that emachines t5212 comes with a Radeon Xpress 200 shared video memory? I tried installing an ATI xpress 200 driver and it didn't work, I'm not sure if 'shared video memory' makes a difference.

sorry if I've confused anyone, I'm completely lost myself :(

I zoomed in but don't see one. It may be integrated into the motherboard.

The ATI Xpress 200 is an IGP, or Integrated Graphics Processor. This is a chip on your motherboard (sometimes part of another chip), not an add-in card.
