what IBM machine is it the model etc,

I presume by short it means shorted out not a good thing and by card it will mean a loose graphics card or ram.

the graphics card is the one where your monitor cable plugs into and its normally easy to remove, unscrew then take out. Some have locks on the actual slot so make sure to check if theres any mechanism to it.
