For the last 4 days, I have been having an issue where my monitor will not power up properly. I have a dual monitor setup. 2xSamsung 225BW 22" monitors ran by an eVGA 8800GTS 512 video card. Windows XP SP3 fully updated.
Last night, I went to bed and I turned off both monitors as I always do. This morning, I get up and turn them on, the main monitor powers up for a split second where I can see my desktop and icons and then I lose picture. The power button is still lit blue indicating the monitor is still powered up, just no picture.
Sometimes powering down and up the monitor works, sometimes I have to do that up to 5 times before it works. My second monitor works fine. Once I get the monitor on, it works fine. I can go all day and have no issues with it. Its just when its been off for an extended amount of time.
I have tried setting "Turn monitor off" to never under power options in the control panel. That did not help.
I'm guessing its a defective monitor but I wanted to get a different viewpoint. Any help would be great.
