Takes several restart to get monitor displaying


Sep 16, 2011
Hi everyone,

I have a Dell ST242OL monitor with a EVGA gtx 280 graphics card. The problem is that when i first start the computer in the morning after turning it off for the night, it takes several restarting for the monitor to display anything, it just says signal not detected. Everytime I manage to get the monitor to display things, i need to change the resolution again...but when it does work, it can display everything fine...movies, games...etc...Sometimes though, after it displays things, it'll show me some crazy colours and the computer freezes...dont know whats wrong...tried reseating the video card, didn't help...


I read somewhere in this forum you can try reseating the RAM, done that too...
