How to determine vga card for replacement

Hi

I am working on a desktop. There is no video coming to the monitor. I am thinking that the vga card may be bad and needs to be replaced. How do I know which one to buy.  Do I go by the part number on the vga board?  Does any old vga boards work in this pc.  This is HP desktop a250y model.  Thanks

You'll need an AGP card. Look for the AGP8x1 version and it should fit.

Any of these will work with your computer:
ATI All-in-Wonder 9000 Pro/64 MB DDR
Nvidia GeForce4 MX440-8x AGP/64 MB DDR + TV-out (included)
Nvidia GeForceFX 5200/128 MB DDR/8x AGP (VGA=DVI+TV-out)
Nvidia GeForceFX 5600/128 MB DDR/8x AGP (VGA=DVI+TV-out)
ATI Radeon 9800/128 MB DDR (VGA+TV-out+DVI)
ATI All-in-Wonder 9000

Or of course any PCI Graphic card should fit too. Just don't buy PCI-Express or PCI-X cards

Thanks for all your help.  I took out the vga card and put it back and it started to work.
