Monitor no longer recognized


OS: Red Hat 9
System: 2 CPU workstation machine

My workstation setup has been pretty stable for the last couple of years, but today when I came in, my monitor was no longer responding. I usually turn the monitor off when I leave for the night and the next morning I turn the monitor on, usually having to move the mouse to "wake up" the system. This morning, nothing happened.

I first went to another computer and ping'ed my machine, and it was responsive, and after ssh-ing into it, I couldn't tell that anything was wrong. I then swapped my monitor for another and I had the following results:

-- new monitor on my machine --
I rebooted the machine (remotely), heard all the usual sounds, saw the start-up on the new monitor. So far, so good. When the reboot was complete, I got a message on the monitor that says "Out of Range" and that's it. None of the monitor buttons work, and I cannot figure out how to interface with the machine, except for remotely.

- old monitor on another machine--
Curious about what happened to my monitor, I plugged it into another machine, and it works fine! In fact, I am using it now. I don't get why it stopped working on my machine.

Any suggetions on how to get either of the monitors working with my machine would be great!

Maybe the graphics card has gone bad?
