I have a very old PC that I use as a media server. For last two days, when I am turning on the PC in morning the monitor power LED keeps turning on & off. I checked cable, changed socket, reinserted all connecting cables. The problem eventually passes. After a while I get a flash of the monitor OEM logo & then eventually it turns back on. And it remains problem free the whole day, even if I restart the PC or anything. Today morning it took a lot longer to turn on, even when it did the display resolution was set to 1024 x 768 whereas my monitor is 1360 x 768. When I corrected it, it started doing it again for a while.

The display driver is Intel G41 Express. Is it a driver issue or should I just buy a new monitor?
