Any chance your computer motherboard has a built in video output that you
can try in place of the graphics card?
It don't sound like a CPU but anything is possible. Used computer shops in
my area usually have older video cards that can be had for minimal price or
a visit to the local dump might turn up a chassis with a card that can be
tried. If it was me I would be trying another video card before giving up
on the motherboard or CPU.
I'm out of ideas at this time. Possibly the others still have a few...
