Can you be a little more detailed/specific about what you're attempting to do; and also what "kit" is involved (make/model of computers and monitor/s)?

No signal means just that, it is not getting a signal through the cable,. You need to go back to where the cable is connected and start checking there, possibly tin the graphics card.

If you have moved the computer there is a good chance the graphics card or some other component has comes lose. You need to open the case and check that graphic memory and any other card are properly seated and that all plugs are firmly in place.

Do we know it's a desk top and not a laptop? Also there is reference to "computers" - suggestive of more than one?

I don't think moving a laptop would present many problems compared to moving a desktop. Laptops are moved all the time. Desktops are a bit more stationary.

Hi Wazza, when making queries such as this, also advise the make and full model number of the device concerned.

If the computer is a desktop, there may be more than one socket for the monitor,

There will be the original socket, and if a Graphics Card has been added there will be another, possibly 2.

Perhaps you have connected to the wrong socket.

When disconnecting/connecting always power off before doing so.

Try disconnecting the monitor interface cable (both ends if applicable) 2 or 3 times. This will clean/reseat its contacts.

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
