    My monitor has been acting funny lately...when i would press the power button for my PC, the monitor wouldnt come on until i restarted the computer about 5 times. Then when it was on sometimes the monitor would turn funny and then it would restart automatically. Im running windows xp.
    Im using a Compaq MV740 on NVIDIA TNT2 Model 64 Pro.

    The next step if you are able to do so is to try the monitor on another system and also try another monitor on yours and see what happens.

    Well, basically, you have to start the process of elimination somewhere, so perhaps you would be best to take it to a shop.
