Humor me and try this. Open it up and remove the vid card Then plug it back in. The wiper action of that will clean the contacts. Believe it or not sometimes it's just that simple.
If no joy there go in the bios and if your system has onboard video, switch over to that. Connect the monitor to that and reboot. If you can get your hands on a vid card for testing swap the card out and go from there.
Let us know what you find out.
You've misunderstood me. The thing won't boot. I think it's getting hung up in the bios, like a power supply error or something like that since I had that happen earlier, but nothing is on the screen. Back in the VGA days, I never had this issue.
There is no video card. I'm running on board graphics.
