My monitor doesn't get signal.
I had an old PC and suddenly, the monitor just stopped responding.
So I got a completely NEW pc from Newegg because I needed a new computer anyways. So upon setting all the cords up, I was disapointed to see that the monitor STILL didn't respond....
I got a different working monitor from the other room and that didn't work.
I took the existing monitor and tried it on a different computer it worked.
No monitors seem to work with the old cpu and the new one...
Obviously, I am deeply perplexed at this odd situation.
Anyone have any ideas?

When you tried the different monitor did you use the old cord or the cord that was on the working monitor? Could be a problem with the cord. Depending on the age of the monitors your new computer may have a standard resolution outside the range of the older monitor.

Sorry to parrot the previous poster but yes - it sounds as though the only constant is the cables. Try the ones from your other computer.

Yup, I've tried different cords..
And, I also tried to plug the cpu and monitor in a different room.
Nothing.

How old are the monitors?
