Check to make sure that everything is plugged in tightly. Furthermore, and only becuase I've done this more than once, ensure that the monitor is plugged into the video card, and not into the monitor plugin on the motherboard. Seems silly, but it could happen!

Do you have another graphics card you could use? Or could you try plugging in a different monitor to your computer, or plugging your monitor into a different computer? We (well, you) should try to narrow things down to issolate the problem. Try to rule out the monitor, then rule out the graphics card. My guess is that it's either one or the other.

Does your mother board support VGA (have a place in the back of the computer where you can plug the monitor into)? If so, then remove the graphics card and plug the monitor into the back of the mobo, and give it a whirl!
