My PC monitor says "no signal"?

My issue started Sunday 11 pm when I turned on my basement PC and got this warning. This is the first time i got this PC problem. I upgraded almost every part of my basement PC except hard drive and graphics card. I got a AMD 3.4 GHZ processor Quad-core (upgraded), DDR3 8GB RAM (upgraded), 450watt power supply (upgraded) a ASUS motherboard (upgraded), HP DVD1270 drive (upgraded) and a ANTEC computer case. The only thing i did not upgrade was my 640 GB hard drive and my Nvidia 9400 graphics card. Nor my monitor which is a HP 2009m. Can somebody tell my what my problem is???? I force shutdown my PC like over 10 times. I unplug and replug like 10 times. I took off the graphics card 5-7 times. I replug my pc monitor 5 times. And i used "Dust destroyer" to eliminate all dust (because there was plenty) before i started unplugging. I was playing the PC game RAGE when it happened. All my computer parts is out of warranty and I cannot afford to buy another $1000 bulky PC. I did that on 2008.

    it might be the VGA cable running from your computer to your moniter, get a new one, they're fairly cheap and you can get them almost anywhere. try unplugging that (turn the knobs until the screw comes out) and replugging it back in at both ends. you can probably get one at your local best buy
