Display output going dark - help needed?

  1. I resumed my PC from standby this morning, and the display output is now so dark, I can hardly see what's on the screen. I don't think the problem lies with the monitor (a new Hyandai 19" LCD) since the on screen controls are still bright and the VGA connection from my Mac still works fine. I have restarted the computer multiple times, as well as unplugged and replugged the DVI. I haven't yet tried using the VGA connection from the pc. I have an Abit IT7 mobo, P4 2.53, 512 MB, ATI 9700 Pro, Win XP SP2. Anyone have any idea what might be going on? My first thought was maybe the bad graphics card was going bad, but now I'm wondering whether the proble might be a bad mobo or RAM. Has anyone experienced anything like this?Thanks for any help you can provide!
