Could be the graphics card / chip thas has gone or if there has been an update or new software installed recently then it could be a corrupted driver.

AGP or PCI-E? There's no real need to get a like for like replacement. The x1300 is quite old and and a budget new card will be just as cheap new as an x1300 is secondhand.

The Dell XPS 210 has a PCI-e slot for graphics but only has a 275watt PSU so the card you need must be low powered.

This Ati 5670 should do it.

Ur Upgrade your PSU and Get a Better card
