    Just got new computer with win 7. I don't know if following problem is an OS issue or not.... it certainly is not a serious concern, but it bugs the hell out of me!

    When booting, the following message appears on screen:
    "The following are warnings that were detected during this boot.
    These can be viewed in setup on the event log page"
    "NO MONITOR FOUND"

    I tried to make some changes in Setup like disabling features that I thought relevant; then enabling them.
    Nothing I did removed that error message.

    Aside from the error message, the computer continues to boot without incident and the monitor performs perfectly. Same problem occurs when PC connected to another monitor.

    What on earth is going on here??? What's causing the boot message, and how can I get rid of it??

    Hi possibly your monitor is a little slow to initialise at boot or the driver is missing it

    I really don't think monitor is slow in initializing ... and how would I know that a driver is missing?

    No I meant as the driver starts it does not pick up the monitor right away

    It's not an error message and you won't get rid of it, I see it all the time on some units. It simply means as suggested earlier that the monitor isn't getting a signal quickly enough and it goes away when it gets signal, everything is doing it's job as it should.
