either your video card has stopped working or your cable to your monitor or the monitor is bad. Try to hook another monitor up to it see if it turns off if it doesn't then the video card needs to be replaced. If it does its the monitor.
That means that the input from the monitor has no read able signal
Either the monitor is bad or the onboard or video card
Take the monitor and hook it up to a different PC to see if it works or hook a different monitor into that PC, that will ID which problem you have
i believe this is the model with s video out put onboard, just connect the s video cable to tv if applicable, if newer model flat screen, most have a vga or rgb input port on back of tv just connect monitor cable to tv and pc and wahla.
If the TV has a VGA input, you can connect the PC's video card to the TV. IF it does not have a VGA input, you will need to but a video card with TV out or Component out (Red, Yellow, White).
YOu have not stated what inputs the TV has, so advice for connection is limited.
Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.
Depends on the Computer. Some have a 15 pin on-board video - in which you can buy a 15 pin to HDMI adapter. Others have video cards with DVI outputs - in which you can buy a DVI to HDMI adapter. Or you can buy a video card to supoorts an HDMI output.
You need to go into the display settings of your computer once the cable is connected and change it to a dual-monitor setup. I'm going to assume you have windows 98/xp, you can find the display settings in your control panel under the title of "display". it'll be under the last tab of the window called "settings".
Keep it in mind, in reality there are a ton of ways to run two monitors. Chances are the one that your going to find easily is to "extend" your desktop onto your tv, making them both run as one screen. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you (you'll probably find it extremely annoying). Also, some video players wont let you play videos on your TV because their worried that your going to copy the video onto vhs.
The display on your tv will be blurry with s-video, and you wont be able to read text easily (hd-tvs are different if your video card is new enough to use the hd-tvs features, and/or your hd-tv can run computer displays. You can purchase a computer monitor to hd-tv cable online or at computer stores) but videos and pictures will look good. And if you have problems and you accidentally switch your display to the tv and your monitor is off, turn off the computer and unplug the s-video, it should go back to normal although it may happen if you put the s-vid cable back into the pc.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have lots of experience doing this.
