So I recently moved, and had to reset up my computer. I set it up, it worked fine as usual and gamed on it perfectly fine.

The next day I wanted to move my room around, so I unplugged everything, set the pc and monitors aside and when I plugged everything back in, I was getting a "no signal" message from my monitor.
Firstly, I tested the HDMI and monitor by plugging it up to my laptop. The screen and hdmi worked fine. I tried using the vga cord that connects my other monitor. Nothing.

Finally, I ran the monitors through the cpu instead of the graphics card inputs and the screens both work fine.

I brought my pc to a friend who builds computers, asked him to check it out. He plugged the pc in, hooked an hdmi through the graphics card to his monitor and it worked fine! I was so glad. Until I once again brought it home, plugged everything back int, only for it not to work anymore.

I tried updating drivers, resetting, updating windows, unclipping and reclipping in the graphics card, dusting the ports, and nothing... I have no idea what else I can do to fix this. It's a cheap prebuilt I got for Christmas that runs what I want fine, so I don't have in interest in swapping parts out either, may as well just wait to a get a new built one myself. Could really use the help :(

You have asked a question on a tech forum but have provided zero information about your hardware, if there is anything wrong at all there could be multiple reasons and helpers need to know what hardware and OS they are working with.

I apologize, here's the missing info:

B75 LGA 1155 Motherboard
Video Card NVIDIA Gforce GTX 650 1GB
DVI, VGA and HDMI Ports
Ethernet port + WiFi

Wasn't sure to include this, was just looking for ideas given the overall problem, my bad!

Couple of questions for you;

Video Card NVIDIA Gforce GTX 650 1GB

Nvidea specs here say that the GPU does not have a VGA port, are you using a DVI to VGA adaptor or do you have a different brand of GPU.

so I unplugged everything, set the pc and monitors aside
I tried using the vga cord that connects my other monitor. Nothing.

You have only list the one monitor (Sceptre 27" Curved 75 Hz) but mention "monitors" a couple of times, how many monitors are you connecting to the GPU and is it only the what you call the GPUs VGA port that is not working.
