try a different monitor- if still nothing, then read on:
99% of motherboards will automatically display from whatever graphics adapter(video card) the monitor is plugged into. you cannot remove the onboard graphics adapter.
if you can hear the POST beep and everything 'sounds' normal, then unplug, slap another card in there and plug the monitor into it. the white slots are PCI and if there is a brown slot at the top, that is an AGP slot. use whatever video adapter is needed.
if it still doesn't display, you are leadpiped- the motherboard is no good. that's about all the answers there are to this dilemma. fixing the display may not fix any other problems this board has...
