Why my monitor shuts off ?

Question

using my computer my monitor went off and i rebooted and it was alright. this happened several times but one day it did not and all i get on the screen is 'no signal input'. i have checked all cards and hard drive in another computer and all work. so i have narrowed it to either the cpu or motherboard. my question before i spend any money is, which could it be, cpu or mb? also i have tried an old mb and cpu but they didn't work either. so i ended up borrowing another mb and cpu and everything works. could it be that my older cpu and/or mb be bad too? thanx, gordon
