This is a very basic & short term answer I only know about this because I am having this exact problem on one of my other PC's with the one I have the only thing that seems to bring the display signal back is to turn off your system, Turn off at plug socket and if it is a Tower system on the back of the tower there will be a small black on/off switch (turn it off) it is for the PSU (power supply unit)
Leave it all off and un-plugged for about 30min
Then after 30min re-connect all cables and turn power on and hopefully the monitor signal will come through as it is meant too.
I know this is a very basic and short term answer, and when I find out exactly what the problem is with my system I will post another reply on here for you.
I hope this works for you???? Honestly I don’t know if it will but it works for my system that is having the same problem.

Good Luck anyway mate,
