No signal to monitor on first startup

I have a problem when starting my PC. The first time I start my PC, the monitor gives back 'no signal'. When turning my PC off and back on, then the monitor suddenly picks up the signal and everything is working as it should be. This is the case every time I'm starting my PC, after I've turned everything off and shut down power (for PC as well as monitor).

It's an own build PC with following specs:
Motherboard: MSI Z170A Gaming M5
VGA: MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K
Monitor: AOC 2260VWQ6
All drivers are up to date (to my knowledge)

PC and monitor are connected through the VGA by DisplayPort.

I hope anyone has any idea what might be causing this issue.

So there is some odd VGA by DisplayPort setup?

Forget that. Do not use odd ball connections like that. For VGA get a VGA connection. For HDMI, HDMI and if you have DP, then the DP to HDMI works too.

Sorry, mixed up the terms/abbreviations

Sorry, I mixed up the terms. What I meant to say was that the monitor is connected to the GPU of the PC by DisplayPort.

Start cheap

Reseat the video card.
Reseat the dp cable both ends.
