Do you have the option of trying a different Video Adapter, without running out and spending a whack of cash?

Try removing video card altogether. Hopefully, on-board video will kick in. At least, you should see boot screen to access BIOS, and enable on-board video.
If you still can't see even boot screen, try another monitor/another cable.

    Quantos, I'm not sure exactly what you mean...

    And hmmm Broni... the place where I would plug the monitor on the mobo isn't VGI like my cable... :(

      Use a can of compressed air and blow out the interior of the system. That absolutely could be the problem.

        I changed the cable linking my monitor to my video card, and tightened the video card as it was loose a bit.

        How is your coffee Quantos? :P (it's 5:36 PM here)

        And Ii will do just this ADG! Can I buy compressed air at the local hardware store?

        You can, but make sure that it is rated for electronics.

          I guess such information can be found on the can itself?

          Actually I just use whatever I get my hands on at Staples, Walmart or where ever. It's air, let's not be fanatical about it ;)

          There are some types that you can find in a hardware store that are not moisture controlled.  They are intended more for applications where a standard air compressor is not an option(usually access).

          Yeah, I know. I've never had a problem and I've been doing it for a long time. I'm always careful, but I also believe there such a thing as worrying too much ;)
