the 1st thing to do would be test the monitor on another system

Simple test. Leave the monitor connected and see if pressing the monitor adjustment control buttons brings up the On Screen Adjustment display. If you cannot even get that to pop up then there's a good chance the monitor's internal powersupply has failed. If you can get OSD then I would be looking at the PC graphics adaptor next.
