Ok. Very old Windows 2000 PC. AGP Radeon 7500
There is no error beep when booting. Just shows "no signal" detected. It did that before intermittently but worked just fine after rebooting. Now it looks like the end has come.
I tried the other "working" monitor I have but it does not work with this PC also. I even reseat the card to its slot. So, the question is how do I know if it's the video card or the AGP controller that's causing it? I'm already looking at a $29 AGP video card at Amazon. Thanks.

dumb question , but did you check for loose connections, blow out the dust bunnies etc...
Borrow an old video card from someone, ask around. Any old PC should have a working PCI or AGP video card you can pull and should work at some basic resolution
And/or find a local PC repair shop who can give advice, and may have an old video card for a nominal price, or in their junk parts bin for free.
Try going the easy route, take out a disc drive and try to boot, if nothing then keeping taking things out until you get it to boot.
I had to do this once and found out that I had a bad DVD burner.
Thanks, guys. I 'might' have the answer. The second time when I removed and reseat the card, I noticed the video card fan is stuck. It does not spin and overheated somehow. So I'm ordering one from Amazon. Thanks again.
