    could be the graphics card which may be defective.
    6 years stored can happen too many things like insects or ants bitting on something inside the computer.

    There are numerous models of the HP Pavilion Elite HPE-000 Desktop PC, so we need to determine which one you have.
    What's the exact serial number(S/N) and product number(P/N) on yours?
    Does it have all of its original hardware, or has any been added or replaced?

    If the graphics card is OK and your system also has on-board video at the back of the box where the motherboard connections are, you may be trying to get video from the wrong connector. You say you removed the video card, does that mean you connected the monitor to the motherboards on-board video and still got no picture? In the bios there should be a setting for which video the system should use first. If you reset the bios to defaults that would probably set the video to on-board. Look in the bios for settings for the proper type of card you have or set it to on-board and connect the blue VGA from the monitor to the motherboards connector not the card. If the monitors connector is DVI you might need a VGA to DVI converter for the on-board video connection unless the board has both VGA and DVI directly off the mobo.

    Explain how you managed to do that without a display!
    I suspect you left out a few things.

    Might be a motherboard issue. You may need to replace it but would prefer to buy a refurbished one instead of spending too much money on trying to fix it but that is up to you to decide.

    According to that serial number, you have THIS HP Pavilion Elite HPE-570f Desktop PC.
    It was purchased in June 2011 and came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and came with this hardware:
    Foxconn H-RS880-uATX (Aloe) motherboard
    mobo.JPG

    AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.20 GHz 6-core processor (uses 125W)
    8 GB of DDR3-1333 RAM
    2 TB SATA 5400 rpm hard drive
    DVD+/-RW SATA disc drive
    AMD Radeon HD 6770 1 GB graphic card (uses 108W)
    gpu.JPG

    WinTV-HVR-1255 TV tuner card
    Ralink RT3090 wireless mini-card
    15-in-1 memory card reader
    460W power supply
    Where exactly is the monitor connected to that desktop?
    Is it connected to one of the motherboard ports or to one of the graphic card ports?
