have u tried the monitor on different computer with same result?
different monitor with the vid card?
video card on different computer with different monitor?
I have had my computer for a while now and it keeps having the same problem. Every time I turn on my pc the monitor only has about a 33% chance of "starting up" and showing the computer graphics. The rest of the time the monitor turns on, but doesn't show anything (it's just black). I have checked all of my connections and use the latest video drivers, but I still seem to keep having this problem, which is really annoying since I have to reboot 2-3 times every time I try to turn on my computer just to get the monitor to work. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I have an integrated video card (I installed a AGP video card the first time I used it) and that this is confusing the monitor. Any ideas on what may be happening? Here are my system specks:
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz
512 Mb Ram
Video: GeXCube Radeon 9600 XT 256 Mb Video
Motherboard: ASUS ASRock GE PRO-M2
Windows XP SP 2
I use a 15" Monitor that worked on my previous PC.
Thanks for your help.
