Monitor issue

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Brother removed and tested the video card and confirmed it is working
(another pc).
Placed it back in the PC and it refused to function. Disgusted, he tried to
boot one last time,... after a late night battle with the PC,... it finally
worked. It is not clear what resolved the problem. If I had to guess, I
would say the card wasn't seated, but have no way to verify because he lives
200 miles away from me.

Thanks again for all the trouble shooting suggestions.
