HP computer has onboard video, no video card. The monitor screen flashes to black then back on....not all the time just on occasionally. I changed the video cable to monitor and changed the monitor but still get the same problem. Since the computer has onboard video, is it possible to bypass this by  purchasing a video card? Older computer , but otherwise runs fine, hate to trash it for this one problem.

That would probably get around the problem. You'd need to find out what peripheral card slots are provided in the system, and get a video card to suit.

 

Occasionally, a problem like this could be caused by something else, such as the mainboard having some bad electrolytic capacitors, and if it was that then replacing the video card might not be necessary or successful. If you open the case to see what slots are available, you would also be able to look for swollen or leaking capacitors on the board. (The other way to determine the slot type is by the specifications for the model of system.)
