Could be, hard to say for sure though. A couple of options (not
necessarily listed in the best order for testing):

-Take the video card from your known working terminal (if you can) and
place it in this machine and see if it works with this monitor

-Temporarily put a very high-quality monitor on this machine and see if
it works

-Once you are at your blank screen, see if you can switch VT's. If you
can, see if any error messages are being displayed, particularly on VT

-Try booting this machine with a Live CD (BBC, Knoppix, Slax, etc...)
and see if it works that way. That will tell you if it might be a
problem specific to LTSP...
