It's probably more likely to be some sort of conflict between programs or hardware, a similar thing happened to me with a Tv card not so long ago, somewhere like Dick smiths should know about what works with what. Hope this is some kinda help.

yes you should be able to upgrade with newer hardware.

if the computer shop can't get it to go and can't find out why it won't go, then find a better computer shop.

if you post what area you live in someone may be able to recommend someone.

Does this computer have an on-board video, and share part of the main memory?

If so, you would need to disaable the onboard video (and remove the meory sharing setting in the BIOS), before trying to use a plugin card.
