So a computer at work went bad (motherboard i think as the monitor, keyboard, and mouse all dont work) so they wanted me to try and switch out a different one. Got it all hooked up and everthing works except it has an IP conflict with another computer on the network. Im wondering if theres a way to find the IP from the fried computer so I can assign it to the new one.

Contact your works IT Department they will be able to tell you an IP address to use.

Also in work environments the IP's should be all DHCP Assigned.

How many computers, and what kind of router do you all use? Do you use a domain controller with DNS enable to hand out IP's?

You most likely have a static IP but you can try this. Click start, type cmd in the search box and open a dos prompt. There type ipconifg/renew and see if this fixes your problem.

Let me know your OS and I will tell you how to fix this.
