      Assuming it has an on-board video card, I’d bet the on-board video is disabled. Maybe the previous owner had installed a better video card and ripped it out before selling it to you.

      Also, if the PC uses a PS/2 keyboard, try a USB keyboard. Could be the PS/2 port is bad.

      Could try another another monitor as well just for process of eliminition…confirm the monitor is still good.
