There is one pin/wire on the VGA connector that translates to the color red on your screen. If you aren't seeing any red, I would suspect that there is damage to the integrated VGA connector on the motherboard, or a component failure in the circuit.
These are great desktop boards.
The Video bus on these boards are shared between the integrated (onboard) video card and port and the AGP slot. This means that you can only use one or the other. When you install an AGP card in the slot it overrides the integrated video including your problem.
If you are good with electronics I'd take a look at the board under the scope and look for damage.
I would rist check with intel on the warranty. You may be surprised. I've had several of these replaced via RMA through intel. They are a bit older but still by desktop board of choice.

Did you add a video card? If you have an AGP slot, it is best to put the video card in it. If so you need to go into the Device manager. Remove, disable or uninstall the onboard VGA driver. Go ahead and remove the PCI video card driver as well. Power down PC. Make sure monitor is hooked up to the Video Card, not onboard VGA. Power on PC. When Windows loads, it should detect the VGA card first, but if it detects the onboard first, ignore and don't setup onboard first. When Windows detects the card, load the necessary drivers when prompted. There is no need to reinstall the onboard driver for the video unless you wish to hook up two monitors.
Good Day sir, try to check the CMOS/BIOS setup, and go look for Initial Display First, there are several options, Onboard / AGP / PCI. OR, after you remove your AGP, clear the CMOS/BIOS setup. find the jumper wire near the battery this sets your motherboard to factory setup and uses the onboard VGA. test the pc without the AGP.
If your PC has started HDD flashing and there is power to the monitor this means that the video card has not told the monitor to display, its kind of like in standby you can get this if the onboard VGA is faulty.
If you have another basic VGA card insert this into a spare PCI slot while the PC is off and plug the monitor into this instead if this works your monitor is fine and looks like your VGA on the mobo is trashed, just buy decent 512MB PCI or AGP video card and use this setup instead.
Its also good idea to disable the on board VGA in the BIOS.
Check the motherboard user guide for how to reset to default factory settings. If the BIOS is set to work with the on-board only and the on-board VGA is dead the motherboard is supose to detect that and switch to AGP. If is not doing that chances are not only the on-board VGA controller is gone ... the motherboard is gone too.
Try with a PCI video card.
1.Reboot with the AGP or PCI video card installed - assuming the on-board is gone but the motherborad still OK.
2. Press DELETE key
is supose to go in BIOS settings menu.
Browse and Look for on board VGA adapter ENABLE/DISABLE setting or something similar.
If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card. There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card. First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card. Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software. If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.
