Hello Silvio mate you are running Ultimate with very little memory and one thing to start with it is to get the RAM increased preferably to at least 4GB.

Now have yu tried another cable the old one may be bad if the cable was used with the laptop then it will be ok.

Now I suggest you start in safe mode and run these please < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
Often said that the sfc is best run for three consecutive runs – doesn’t take long but it is your choice.

Now have you recently installed any new software particularly those that claim to enhance the performance of the machine ie driver updates, drive /system cleaners??

To us to help you, you must give us ALL hardware specs.
If the computer isn't the one on your profile, please give us ALL hardware specs.

It seems to me that the problem is on the graphics card.

If VGA works fine, then it it is likely that your video driver is bad. If a new driver doesn't fix this, try an older driver. Sometimes drivers have bugs, and so if you go to an old driver, you will get one without the bugs.

Yep that is a really old card my fiend and if the budget will allow it I would go for a new one say something like this would be better than that one
GIGABYTE GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 GV-N710D5SL-2GL 2GB 64-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x 8 Low Profile Video Card -
or this which I personally go for
ASUS GeForce GT 710 2GB GDDR5 HDMI VGA DVI Graphics Card -

Now you do have room for more RAM too f you wanted a bit more out of the machine because 2GB is pretty slim for the Windows Ultimate version even the 32bit one if you do add more the just check the speeds and timings first they must very close to what you have already got.
