The error with the black screen is a common symptom of graphics drivers that are not up to date. So if you haven't, I suggest updating your gpu drivers and see if that fixes the problems you're having.

Yeah, that was bad when it came out, and it came out like a decade ago. Gonna need a new computer for Melty. You can try doing driver updates, I doubt it'll help.

You'd probably have to replace the entire computer, honestly. Motherboard probably doesn't have the ports for a modern card. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't have any ports for any card. XPRESS 200 isn't an actual card. It's integrated.
