You need to supply additional model information. Do you see a service tag on the case?

The GeForce2 MX 400 is definitely better than the VIA/S3, but it's still a pretty outdated card. Here's a few others to consider:

Those'll work if there's an agp slot on the motherboard.

If not, these are worth a look...

That machine would run better with an additional 256-512Mb ram too.

"Those'll work if there's an agp slot on the motherboard"
