No signal on my monitor
I am new on here and I have been having a problem with my pc. I have a hp Pavilion elite hpe-140f PC that I use to run a small home recording studio. Anyhow I recently moved my equipment and ever since I have not been able to get a signal on my monitor. It did twice in which when I shut it down it did not work after. Two days of trying and finally it worked again. Although I downloaded the newest version of itunes and when it had to restart I could not get signal once again. This is very frustrating, having to deal with this. I opened the shell n got rid of the dust and still nothing. Please Help

Sorry if this doesnt help but great if this does

Are you using onboard video or a separate video card?
If its a plug-in graphics card, then, its possible. the card may need to be unplugged and re-inserted into its slot to "refresh" its contact with the slot its in.
You need to make sure PC is turned off and unplugged from power before trying the removal/reinsertion process [if its a separate card ].
