Before I turned them on I gave them both a good cleaning inside and out (As you're supposed to and not with anything damp). I used a hoover with a circular head to clean inside both, I know you're not supposed to do this as a small static charge can damage a motherbaord, but I've done it before and I'm careful and no harm was done.
However, when I set up and turned on the XP PC the monitor was saying: "No Signal". So I took the VDA lead out and reinserted it several times and it still didn't work.
The XP PC Tower itself does come on and the fans do work.
So I tried connecting some other monitors to the XP PC and it still didn't work. So I tried connecting the monitors to my Vista PC and they worked!
I checked inside the XP PC to see if I knocked any wires out of their sockets but I don't think I have. There are some lose ones but they've always been there to my recolection.
The XP PC itself was in top condition and barely any of the HDD was used. The only new thing I'd installed on it was SUPER Anti-Spyware to give it a cleaning on top of what I'd already done with Avast, MalwareBytes, Spybot Search & Destory and Spyware Blaster (I like to keep my machines clean).
Thank you in advance!
