    Hi, I have had the issue for a while where my computer starts up but only sometimes will the monitors also start. I have a dual monitor set up and when they do start, everything works fine. However, more and more they now do not start.

    What happens:
    When I press the PC On button, the PC turns on as does the keyboard but the monitors do not. They both have power going to them as the power light is on.

    - I have tried unplugging the monitors and replugging them. The cables all seem fine.
    - I have tried start up repair

    I don't know what else to try. This morning they all turned on but now for the rest of the day everytime I have tried, nothing.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you for replying. The monitors have power. The light to indicate that is on. It is that they won't pick up the signal from the PC. About half an hour ago, they turned back on and Windows went into error disc repair mode and when it finished, the monitors lost signal and went black again and now won't turn back on.

    It sounds like the problem is with the computer and may need to be serviced.
