    Re: monitor blackout upon startup

    What kind of computer, and what OS ?


    I'm not sure why, but this kind of sounds like a power-management issue. Try opening your Control Panel .. Power Options .. and check "Power Schemes" Change it to "Always on" , and then go to the Hibernate tab and Un-check "Enable Hibernation" (Assumes Win XP). See if that helps at all.

    Re: monitor blackout upon startup

    If Jim's suggestion about power management doesn't complete the job, I'm gonna make what sounds like a silly suggestion or two. Someone else in the Lounge just recently had a monitor problem and was able to wrestle through it - check the cable from the monitor to the computer, at both ends if appropriate. Sometimes that cable can get just a hair loose or a small bit crooked and the video signal goes beserk. Even if you have to take it loose and re-seat it tightly - you don't have to turn off the computer to do so. Now, do shutdown for this one - check the seating of the video card, carefully. They too sometimes get loose just a tiny bit from vibration or whatever, and it's hard to tell that except by re-seating it. Keep us posted.
