    A friend with the same problem has to wait until the computer has completely loaded Windows before he turns the monitor on.
    Try that and post what happens.

    is your monitor set to the same input as the cable i.e. if your monitor is connected via VGA cable, is the mointor set to VGA rather than auto detect. Are there any messages on the screen such as signal out of range.

    Check the back of the computer. Make sure the monitor is connected to the correct video card. If you have an onboard and then have added a video card, you might have plugged the monitor into the wrong spot. (I did this once and it took me a day to figure out what I did wrong).
