The amount of information that you give is not enough to be able to understand exactly what is happening. It could be as simple as a bad connection or cable, or a vidieo card or monitor on it's last legs. Start by checking the connection, by moving the cable around while running, to see if you can get it to "flash". If so, check the connection or replace the cable.

If not, you must determine if the video card or the monitor is the problem. I don't know of any way to do that, except by swapping out either video cards, or monitors, if you have acess to a spare.

Try a different input on the card - VGA - D-Sub - HDMI etc.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

In a rough order to try:
*Wiggle cable
*Different Video Port (if you have them)
*New Cable (If you have a spare, don't go buy one)
*New Monitor (If you have a spare, don't go buy one)
*New Graphics Drivers
*Different Graphics Card (If you have a spare, don't go buy one)

Let us know what happens.
