This is something that has been happening for a few weeks/months. My monitor is a Benq GW2470HE. More often than not when I turn on my computer the monitor just won't turn on. It's as if the computer wasn't turned on at all. I try to push the on/off button and when it's back on the monitor displays a message saying "no input detected" or something like that. Usually it takes 2/3 times of turning off and on the computer until the monitor finally displays. Today was particularly bad, I spent a solid 5 minutes turning my PC off and on until the monitor started working. I have a second monitor and that one won't display anything either.

I wish I could say more but I am clueless as to what the cause might be. All connections seem good, my drivers are up to date, once the monitor finally works it works perfectly fine...
