    well one way to check would be to take the video card out and use the motherboards onboard video. if you get a picture then id say the video card is your culprit. :)

    if you have an extra monitor, or computer, you could try hooking the monitor up to the problematic computer, or hooking up the problematic computer's monitor to the working computer. I have a feeling the monitor is fine, but it is an easy thing to check.
