Okay I'll do my best to to walk through all this in detail.

I have a working PC that's connected to my working monitor by VGA.

After building a new pc I unplug all cords of my known working PC, and then begin plugging in and booting up my new pc.

My new PC turns on but I have no screen input.

After trouble shooting, I decide to leave it be and replug in my known working PC.

My known working PC turns on but with no screen input.

I've tried VGA and HDMI cables on both. I have no idea why my monitor has decided to not accept either computer and I'm totally stumped.

I do not think it's an issue with my PC, as it was working fine just before I unplugged the cords.

All VGA cables seem to be inserted tightly.

The monitor has always been working fine until I plugged it into the new pc.

Does anyone have any clue what happened and how I can trouble shoot this?

I don't have a right out solution for you but have you attempted to re-attach the old build to ensure it isnt the monitor?
I've got an older monitor like that, has DVI and VGA on it, but the moment I connect this one computer on it to work on it, it fails to display anything. I have to connect it to a 'newer' (more 16:9 layout) monitor.

If you have a newer monitor with the HDMI or displayport try connecting to that.

First of all, you are posting in a hardware forum and no one [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. In order to help you, you need to post a LOT more info. Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact processor, exact video card, etc, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for all of your parts.

I eventually figured out what the problem was.

I was building a new system, with a older monitor. While it had HDMI, it wasn’t a 16:9 shape monitor. Once I plugged into a slightly newer monitor it worked fine. Always good to keep another monitor in the house... lol.

I’m figuring it has to do something with refresh and resolution on the lcd vs what the computer accepts.
