Default Monitor and Computer are fine, but nothing shows up on the monitor. HELP

For the first time ever i unscrewed my computer, i wanted to vacuum all the dust out. Once i got inside the machine i took out the 2 fans, the RAM, and the hard drive, and unscrewed the power supply box but didnt unhook anything from there. Once i finished i reconnected everything and tried to turn on my computer, but nothing was showing up on the monitor. The computer starts normally, there's a green light inside of it so its getting power, the monitor says "test good" whenever i test to see if its working. I've also already tried plugging my monitor into the motherboard port as well as its default port. Can anyone help?

pull your vid card out and put it back in to see if it came loose.
