I have two towers that will not, when turned on, show any sort of display on the monitors. The monitors both say "no signal". This started happening just after I switched the processors within them. The reason for this was because one processor was faster than the other and i wanted to see if, when the processors were switched, the performance would be boosted. The monitor said "no signal" so i switched the processors back, and still when i try to plug each monitor into each tower, there is no signal. The computers both turn on but will not display anything. The monitors work on other computers, so there is nothing wrong with the monitors themselves, but, on the other hand, the computers will not work even with other monitors. Please help.

hello... what motherboard did ya have and what CPU's did ya switch? not all CPU's work in all motherboards!!! did ya do any research before you did this? You can go to the PassMark website to determine CPU performance without physically doing it...
