Default OnBoard Video w/ Win95

Ok this is abit of a different system here... I'm taking care of a parking machine at work and what has happened is the HDD went first off and then I changed the HDD and connected everything again and now when I power the machine back on I get White Screen of Death... I've rechecked all the connections and everything is good... I'm just not sure how to add a different Video Card if there is a serial adapter on the mobo right now to hook up the display?

I can't be 100% sure on any of the specs...

Processor - 486
HDD - 1.2 GB
Background OS - Win95 with a parking software running...

The mobo is like it's cut in half and 1 half is mounted on the case and then the other half is like a video card but with the rest of the stuff on it like the fan, processor etc.

I'm pretty sure it's the onboard video card that is the problem but like I had said I'm not sure how to add a new video card with the serial adapter connected to the mobo extension card.

Sounds like it's time for a new one.

Look, if it's the vid card that's faulty, it's useless to keep it. Unless you see something, you can't get higher than a 256KB ISA video card...

You can't have WinXP in there.
But, if you can't get a new system...well you can buy an used one...around $150-200?
