Are you using the built-in video card? (Is there one? )

Try a different video source and see if that works.

Why not? It can be the video card. Only way to find out is to try another card.

Probably one of the IC chips on the card gone bad but we haven't checked the slot and you need another card to do that.

Like I said, card is dead or dying. Not really much you yourself can do to fix it.. If it's still under warranty (XFX and EVGA have lifetime warranties, if you registered it, that is), you can get it replaced. And since I doubt they'll have that card anymore... it would probably be upgraded to an equivalent card by nowadays standards.
