Could be either Monitor,Graphics Card or Cable.

If you got spare Monitor try this first, If no joy not monitor.

Check if graphics card has come loose in M/Board, which is a common fault on this site.

If a seperate monitor cable, and not one of the types pre-built into unit could well be this.
Again make sure both ends are properly connected.

Still no Joy, could well be graphic card itself has failed. A spare card if you got will prove this either way.

Please post back on findings.

I would try and start it in safe mode.

As it starts to boot, keep pressing the F8 key. See if it fully loads.
