Firstly check the cable is fine, no bent pins ect, and change it for the same one as your laptop one if its a different one you use.

Next off open up your case and check everything is secured in place, especially the graphics card if you have one, simply push it down and check the power connectors are seated correctly.

If you use two different cables then check that the input on the monitor is set to the correct PC.

Well noise doesn't translate to working. Just because the PC is making noise still could mean you have a video output problem. Can you tell us the specifications of this PC even open and take a picture for us to understand better. Do you have another monitor you can try or borrow a friends? Have you tried booting into bios and does the monitor work then? Have you tried to switch the inputs and what happens or what is displayed.

Is that card plugged into the pci slot a graphics card?, looks like it could be. If so are you plugging into this connector or maybe another straight off the mobo? The PC looks dusty and could use a blast of compressed air and it's always a good idea after sitting for a long period to carefully un-seat and re-seat all power and data connections and any cards as corrosion can build up and prevent proper electrical contact.

Are you trying to get data off this old PC or just get it working again?
