    Monitor shuts off on restart

    My monitor comes up black on restart. The computer seems to restart although I cant see the screen.

    On a total shut down there is no problem.

    Also, I thought it was the video card because if I took the card out and re-seated it the monitor would come on so I tried another video card but the same thing happens.

    What next?

    is this a new occurance with an old piece of hardware, or is it a new monitor, vid card, mobo, or the like? is it a VGA or DVI connection? does the monitor turn on on the restart if you press the power button? how many questions can i answer your question with? :confused: :D

    This is an older machine I got from someone else with the original equip. Think it may have been happening before.

    VGA

    No the power button on the monitor doesn't do anything when this occures.

    I am having the same problem only when I shut down my system it happens.

    I'll shut Down and then later when I start it up I get a black screen. The monitor is on and everything and pressing the monitors power button does nothing.

    This has started happening ever since I bought my new video card (ATi Radeon 9700Pro).

    I was going to start a thread on this matter but I saw this one so can someone help me also
