    I have a Samsung syncmaster 22 inch monitor
    when I turn on my monitor the boot startup screen does not always come on.
    normally when I turn the monitor on the analog/digital symbol should appears, this only does it sometimes and have to do several restarts to get to the boot screen up
    once it's on I have no problems
    I have a amd radeon 4450 card

    The computer/video card have nothing to do with the monitor powering on. You don't even need to turn the monitor off. When the computer is powered off, the monitor will lose the video signal and should then go into power save mode. When the computer is powered back on, the monitor should see the video signal and power on.

    I agree with Oddba11. There's no need to turn the monitor off and on.

    If the Monitor is switched on before the PC is you should see the POST stuff on the screen so there could be something wrong. It may need more time to detect which input is active, analogue or digital. Which are you using ?

    Try leaving the Monitor switched on as mentioned and see if that makes any difference.
