Windows 7: No Signal on monitor

No Signal on monitor

Using win7 home premier for 2 months no problems. Went away for 30 days, came home and booted the computer (HP s3220n). After the windows splash screen, the monitor (Westinghouse LCM-22w3) read "no signal". Booted into safe mode & uninstalled the graphic device (nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430 onboard) in the device manager and rebooted. Same result. Restored to a previous date. Same result. Installed Nvidia drivers, various dates, same results. Installed window driver for the graphic adapter, same result. Reset monitor. Same result.
Currently using VGA driver, can't obtain the resolutions I could with the correct drivers. Any ideas?

I fixed it!

Borrowed another monitor, started windows. Installed the windows Nvida driver.
Set the driver for low colors and low resolution. Switched monitors back to mine and rebooted. Video okay. Adjusted resolution and colors in small steps, rebooting after every change. After adjusting back to 1680 x 1050 32 bit color everything is okay.
I will not let windows update the video driver.
I will hold on to the borrowed monitor for a period of time.
