Actually what vjay posted is exactly what you need. You need to perform a boot block recovery using the diskette that was linked above. It will restore your BIOS and reset it to the correct options. You will need to re-enter your Machine type/model/Serial number using the BIOS diskette once the system is working again.
The HMM on page 114 will tell you how to do this.

It would appear that I have a similar problem of no display. I have a ThinkCentre M50 8189-31U running xp. Before I assumed ownership, the machine used to have a video card in addition to on-board. However, before reselling it was removed. Now when I try to use the onboard, I have a blank screen. The monitor has been fully tested. The hard drive has been fully tested.
I tried to use the above stated processes to reset the bios in the hopes of being able to see any on-screen output but was unsuccessful.
Where do I go from here?

The first thought about your post was this could be the setup of the videocard it used to have - but can you go into BIOS? Do you not see anything at all from the very beginning (right after you turn the machine on)?

I am also assuming that it is the result of the missing card. I have absolutely no video output, even after trying to use the before-mentioned boot disk technique.

For you guys or gals that are trying to use onboard VGA plug on motherboard. Go into your bios and find onboard sound and onboard video table. Enable both if they are disabled. This should get your moniter working if your onboard video chip is any good and working.
If that is to tough, go into bios and set bios to system defaults. You will still have to set up boot order after that by going into bios and put network booting at the bottom of boot list. Also enable Plug and play on its menu in the bios .
