During Power On Self Test (when the PC initializes and detects hardware) do you see any text on screen?

If you have Windows XP, power up the PC, and just before the operating system loading splash screen, hit F8 on the keyboard, and select to boot with Enable VGA Mode. This should, if the monitor is working correctly, force your display to the lowest resolution, refresh rate and color depth.
