Monitor not displaying picture, but turns on

  1. I am trying to hook up my Pavilion 700 to a Dell CRT monitor. When I plug it in to the VGA and turn it on, the orange light on the monitor goes green (like its supposed to) but nothing displays on the screen. I even removed the add-in video card and just tried using the integrated but with the same results.

    I know the monitor is not bad because I just tested it with two other computers and an xbox360.

    Any ideas? All help is appreciated.
