    Hi,

    I have a Lenovo Y900 desktop with dual Samsung Monitors connected via HDMI connections. I have had the PC for about 4 - 5 months and up until yesterday all worked well. I have been away on vacation for 3 weeks and when I returned I booted up the computer only to find the monitors initially started up and then went blank! When I restarted the computer through holding the power button down and restarting the monitors worked fine.

    This is now happening every time I start the computer which is strange. The monitors initially start with the PC then go blank until I restart the PC. This one is baffling me and have no idea what the solution is. Anyone have any ideas?

    Reinstall the graphics card drivers.

    Hey Andrew, thanks for the tip, I tried this last night but it didn't work. Uninstalled the graphics card and re-installed it but made no difference. Its weird, the monitors initially turn-on on startup but then switch off then I have to restart the PC before they come on again! so strange
