On the not recognizing video cards issue,

Go in the BIOS & make sure the video is set to P{CI-E or Peg/IGA or whatever the onboard is listed at.

If you are going to use a add-in video card it has to be set to be recogniozed in the BIOS.

On the color issue, Go to the manufacturers website & download the newest video driver & install it.
That may help.

You can try a PCI video card but I think you will have to check the BIOS to see if it can be set to PCI.

Go in the BIOS
Set it for PCI video, Exit the BIOS saving the change
Turn the unit off
Unplug it
Pop in the PCI card & try it.
