Anyways, the pentium 4 has never worked on this monitor before.

EDIT: I tried making a LAN with my vista machine and the pentium 4. My vista machine recognizes it.

@OP: when you were trying the onboard ports, did you remove the graphics card then try to bootup on onboard?
^ yeah that's what I meant Doesn't it output through discrete unless either A) set in BIOS or B) the discrete GPU is removed? That's my line of thought

I got it fixed. Apparently, it was a mobo issue.
