Have you tried using a different cable/video port (maybe DVI or VGA)?

Remove the video card from the computer and plug the video cable into the onboard graphics. This will help diagnose.

It's more likely that your video card went bad than a cable going bad. I just suggested the cable for testing in case you had one lying around (in other words, free). You could always try reseating the video card and make sure the fan on it is turning correctly.
