Yup, best bet is to figure out what kind of slot your motherboard has (typically PCI-express) and purchase a suitable video adapter.

While there is a 1% chance that the problem is something else, such as a faulty power supply or motherboard, the quickest fix is most likely just to add a video adapter.

Or, in other words, make sure the monitor is plugged into the same outlet as the PC.

Is this a flat-panel LCD or an old-fashioned CRT display?

Also check...

Check if the plug/port of your monitor is clean. Sometimes this is just an issue with dirt and dust getting into the port/plug. Also check if the pins in the monitor plug are perfectly aligned or if the pins are missing/damaged/bent/rusted.

adjust the refresh rate

Monitor may not be able to handle a high refresh 75Frames/sec try lowering to 60frames/sec, the laptop with the usually limited graphics may be simply be already using a lower rate

monitor

That can happen is your PC is pushing more than the monitor can handle, in terms of refresh rate of resolution.
