    I have a system from 2006 still running Windows XP. This is not a gaming system, and there is nothing that is graphically intensive.

    The video card is a GeForce card with a DVI connection that went out about a month ago, also corrupting the system file in the process. After reinstalling windows, I then hooked the monitor up to the integrated display adapter with a VGA connection. That worked for a couple of weeks, and now that went out as well.

    What could be causing this ?

    Well at the moment I don't have a way to see my computer info.

    I would have to buy another video card for that, and if its the motherboard causing the problem, then another one will go out fairly quickly.

    If the integrated graphics has stopped working then I wouldn't be buying a new graphics card. Also how do you know it's just the integrated graphics and not the entire motherboard that has failed on you? Or it could be the power supply. Have you ruled out the original issue wasn't a power supply or more serious motherboard issue?
