Dang i guess i'm out of luck i can't get the colors display right red won't show and most of it looks washed out. I gotta save up for a new video card then. Thanks for the help.

Probably the best you can do is try a cheap used PCI-e video card in the slot I have circled

Do you have anything besides VGA for a connection? Possibly DVI? If so, borrow a DVI cable and try that.

I also think it's most likely the IGP got fried and needs a replacement.
If it was me I'd test the monitor on another PC, and/or test a different monitor on this PC.
It'd be a bummer to buy a GPU and then find out it's a monitor problem...
