Monitor Powerup IFFY!



Hey, I've recently built a new PC, it runs like a dream...when it works properly.

But when I press the power on button, the fans and case fan light come on but monitor says 'no input signal' and stays on amber light.

If I hold the power button down a few seconds, and try powering up another time or 2 i then hear the hard drives kick in and the monitor comes on as expected.

What could this be? Everything inside seems securely connected.

Maybe BIOS settings need configuring somehow?

Any ideas? Thank you.


Where is your monitor plugged in? To a separate socket, or directly into your power supply? If the latter, try plugging it into its own socket, and see what happens. It's clear that your PSU doesn't have enough power to drive your components and the display.
