Where would this image come from? Do you have the path to the image in the datatable column?

use Rowdatabound event, . . in C#, easy to convert to VB:

  protected void grid1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
  {
   
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
    {
        Image img1 (Image)e.Row.FindControl("image1");

        if ((DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "img1")) = "your critera for the image"  )
        {
             img1.ImageUrl = "your new image"

Please explain in full details what you are trying to do. I think the code Mike posted is valid for ASP.NET and you are probably talking about WinForms application.
