Sony vaio pcv-rx860 boots but no monitor

\015 I've got a desktop Sony Vaio that has been used in about 6mos while redoing our home office. Just plugged it in and it boots and "sounds" fine with all the beeps, etc., but the monitor says "no input". I opened the top and found a lot of dust- so I used "dust-off" to get rid of it and tried again- still same issue. I tried the monitor on my laptop and no problems there, so I know the monitor's fine. Also, when pc boots, the keyboard lights up, so it's working as well. What am I missing? Can't really check anything or get into safe mode to see what's going on since I don't have a monitor connection working.\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

Since your comfortable with opening the case, with the power shut OFF, re-seat the video card ( assuming it has one and isn't built onto the motherboard ) What I mean by this is: remove the video card and re-install it.
Hi,
\015\012check your graphics card on the PC ?
\015\012Or boot into the bios, and see if it,s set to bootup to a PCI Or AGP Card.
\015\012If onboard, re-install the Drivers For VGA.
