Does motherboard have video send capabilities

Specs: Windows7, dual 2g/3g ram
Does the motherboard have video capabilities and if it does how can you hook it up to the monitor? I've noticed plugs are different on the monitor (has s-video, phono type and the usual multi-pin connector) than the PC. Sorry about my OS info but I can't access my system and it's all I can remember whats in there.

Well, that's almost impossible to answer, as nothing of the specs says anything about what motherboard is used in your computer. Some boards do have an on-board graphics chip, some do not. If there is one, your motherboard should have almost certainly a D_SUB VGA connector (those are the smaller multi-PIN connectors, most often colour coded in blue), or maybe a DVI connector (those are somewhat wider, most often colour coded in white, and have a slit or cross formed bit on one side of the pin array). Just check on the back of your computer if such a connector can be found near the other motherboard connectors (like USB, PS/2, network etc.). If there is neither connector present, then your motherboard has no on board video processor, and you need a graphics card to operate your system.

If you don't have something sticking out of the back of the computer that you can connect the monitor to then you need to buy a video card to connect it to.

If this is your computer, what has changed that makes you unable to connect the monitor?
