You've done the normal. I would suspect (in the following order) (1) is the scan frequency set correctly - for a TFT 60hz will suffice (2) is the cable to the monitor OK, particularly if a replacement works (3) are the contacts on the graphics card clean (you have checked the seating) and lastly (4) is the card well ventilated to prevent overheating? Like I say, in that order!
