Need help, i think monitor just died

99% sure that my monitor just died, but I would like a 2nd opinion. Until yesterday i was running an A2SL or whatever mobo with a P3 933 and a ATI Rage Pro. My Ti4600 died and I was too cheap to buy a new card so i scavenged one from work. A friend at work gives me his FX5200 to try out if i want to buy it. It worked fine yesterday, except the picture suddenly started getting darker until the monitor went black. I turned it off and on and it would be OK.

fast forward to today. I come home and the screen is black. Turn it off and on and picture comes back, but all screwed up and then goes off again in 10 seconds. I reboot and then all i get is a thin vertical line. Put the ATI back in there and no picture at all.

PC sounds like it boots properly. From a cod start the power light on the monitor goes from amber to green and you can hear the HD work like the PC is starting.
