You will need to provide the exact model and onboard memory of the video card to get a specifically accurate answer from any of us.

 

Since your desktop has an anemic 180W internal PSU, that means any video card that has more than 1 or 2 GB onboard will not work as the more powerful versions of PCIe video cards (i.e. 4-16GB onboard VRAM) require a PCIe connection from the PSU to the video card.

 

So, given that information I can tell you that it is likely that the 180 watt PSU just isn't enough. Powerful video cards need 400 watts or greater and a PCIe connector from the PSU.

fortunately, the photo doesn't help since it doesn't show any part numbers.

 

AFAIK ATI does not make a Radeon HD 5440   video card.

 

Some motherboards work well with NVIDIA video cards but will not support ATI video cards.
