Default Add-in grafix card monitor problem (help)

Hey everyone, I've had this screen pop up ever sense i bought the computer from someone as i boot up the computer. I can click f1 and skip it but I think the computer has a custom built in graphics card, but it doesn't work unless i can fix this problem (i guess).My computer is a Dell Vostro 200. As you can tell I really have no clue what I'm doing so heres a few pictures to see if you could help me out. Do I need a new cable? but anyways thanks.

Yes, you will need a DVI cable (and a monitor with a DVI slot), or at least a DVI->VGA converter like this one

For reference the greenish ones in the top expansion slot are the DVI slots.

Alternatively, you could remove the graphics card and use the slot you're using currently, but then you'd have much worse graphics.

Do NOT post multiple topics of the same thing. As you can see it causes nothing but confusion. You have help in both threads.
