What does the screen do when you turn on the computer? Does it have that black "i'm on but not doing anything but I'm turned on" tone to it, or is there no display at all?

I am assuming the computer seemingly turns on ok. According to the MANUAL (click on the technical specs) It has an integrated speaker so you should hear the POST beeps it should be ONE SHORT beep. If thats good you can purchase a new video card. You need a AGP 1x or 2x compatible card or a PCI compatible card. Do not confuse PCI-X with PCI. If the computer fails to POST correctly IE: it beeps more than once. There is a problem with the hardware, on page 88 of the MB manual are the list of POST beep codes look up the code and post your results.

If you just got this PC its possibly that the prior owner had the OS resolution set higher than what your monitor can handle. Do you see anything when you boot up prior to the OS launch?
