My on-board graphics card failed, so I bought a new stand alone card. My problem is that the slot on the motherboard for the graphics card does not line up with the expansion ports, one is too high up, the next too low down. Any suggestions?

When you say that the slots do not line up do you mean that the pins on the card do not line up, or the opening in the back does not line up.
This is important as there are differant slots, PCI,PCI express, agp.
If it is just a matter of the opening in the back of the computer you have removed the wrong plate, and a closer look should indicate which plate to remove.
