    Default Blank Screen After Frist Boot

    Hi I are running W2K and my problem is that when I first turn on my computer from having it switched off at the wall over night, it boots up find then within the first minute or so the screen goes blank like into standby mode, the computer is still running, and I have to re-boot. After the second boot up everything runs fine.

    What I am trying to do is find the thread I seen on a simular problem I viewed here a few days ago, which I cannot now find?

    Any ideas, many thanks.

    Have you tried a different monitor?

    Yes I know it my monitor; I would like to find that thread that I felt explained the reason really well?

    Would it be this thread?

    If not, go through the posts by Billy T until you find a monitor one as Billy is the forum's resident monitor guru and it is likely he provided an answer.

    Failing that, try Godfather's posts.
