Are we talking about an AGP graphics card? Maybe your mobo doesn't support it's speed (2X, 4X,8X). Have you got a manual where you can check the specs? If not post the make and model back here.

Have you tried the monitor on another computer to see if it works? Have you tried and monitor on your new computer to see if it could possibily be the new computer (maybe motherboard).

How will you format the hard drive if you have no video?

It's nothing to do with your hard drive - even if you don't have a hard drive connected the monitor should display POST test results ("boot messages") when you boot up. There's something wrong with your system which is preventing it from booting... are there any other PCI cards? If so take them out. Are you sure the RAM is the correct type and seated properly?
