I would first reseat the video card. See if you can test the monitor on another machine to eliminate it as a suspect. If your video card is a PCI card then try it in a different slot, of course if it's a AGP card it will only go in the AGP slot.

I would recommend checking to see if the cables are connected correctly. From what you've said it sounds like you need a new graphics card.
