  1. test monitor on a different computer to see if it works
  2. \015\012
  3. It could be the integrated graphics adapter that has failed. if you have an old graphics card you can try installing it and connecting the monitor to it. This will only work if the computers BIOS is configured to try and use add-in video cards, which of course, you can't check the BIOS without a working display :(
\015\012For number 2, if it doesn't work at first, you can try clearing the CMOS which resets the BIOS to default. Typically, the default BIOS settings are to try add-in cards first before the integrated one.
Find out the price and then compare... but in my experience... its cheaper to get a new mother board with the chip and then just install it... in the end... all you are really concerned about is the hard drive... becuase thats where your data is...
