no.1- you need to clean that pc, that is dusty as fook
no.2- looks like you bought the wrong card for your mobo.(hard tell from photo)

see that white empy slot, thats where it should fit. (mobo is a blast from the past. its like 7yrs old isnt it? lol)

A graphics card should fit into the brown/black slot (AGP) ABOVE the white slot, but the card you have bought is PCI-e x16

It's not gonna fit mate.

EDIT: It's pretty hard to tell actually from the picture.

Whats the make and model of the graphics card?
Athlon II x4 645 || 1TB 7200rpm HDD || EVGA GTX 650Ti OC || 8GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 7 Home x64

i5 4210M || 500GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD || GeForce 825M || 16GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 10 x64
