It needs a dedicated graphics adapter (Graphics Card).

Will need more than just a picture to tell you which one would be best. Motherboard model? PCI/PCI-E/AGP Lanes?

That board is a PCI-e/PCI Express x16 supporting board. As such, you need a working PCI-e graphics adapter to get any output to the screen. by VGA adapter do you mean PCI-E expansion card? any idea on brand and/or whether it's a working one?

Ah, as per the picture you have a GPU with only DVI connections on it. You need a DVI to VGA adapter to make it work, I assume that's what you meant. Have you tried on both DVI connectors, and there's a chance your adapter could be faulty.

Definitely a working cable? monitor has power? Don't mean to patronize but don't want to be missing silly little things.

Do you have a motherboard speaker? If the computer fails it's POST (Power On Self Test) It will continue spinning fans and lighting lights, but nothing will appear on the screen.

It should only beep once if it's booting okay, More than one beep is often the sign of a problem. No beeps at all is also the sign of a problem. It means something in your PC is failing or has failed. Namely, the RAM, GPU, CPU or Motherboard.

POST troubleshooting steps.
