There are several things to try.
1. If you connect a monitor, does it boot? (Maybe the
problem is somewhere else.)
2. What if you only connect a monitor plug or cable, but
no actual monitor?
3. What if you remove the graphics card?
4. Some BIOS setups have an option to select the type of
graphics card (VGA, CGA, monochrome). If your BIOS
supports it, set that option to "none".
