My Computer would keep rebooting itself after about 20 seconds after windows reloads right before my wallpaper appears. Now, the monitor is powered up and the computer is powered up, but there is no display on the screen. The monitor just has its standard message of 'check cable'. I checked the cable and the connection is fine. Is my graphics card (whatever it is called that my monitor plugs into) a goner?

I did see the bios during boot up, however, now the monitor acts like it isn't plugged in to the computer at all. I think it is agp. It is not on board graphics. That went toes up last year.
