maybe its just a bad connection from the back of the tower, from travel. just take open the case, and make sure that all the cords are snug....and try posting in the computer hardware/software place..

the connections are fine...
i just found out that when i removed the connection from the computer to the monitor, the monitor turns on and displays 'no signal'...does that mean i need to install the video card?...if so how am i able to install it if i can't see anything?

oh by the way, this is wat my brother's agp slot looks like..

Well, without a video card, how would you think the monitor would turn on? You should install one
