Default Big monitor problems

So, I'm not really sure if its a monitor problem or another hardware problem, but virtually every time i restart no image comes up, so i have to restart my comp/monitor several times to get it working. Any ideas? (specs are in the sig)

Make sure the connection is tight, between the monitor and graphic card.

Should be a hardware problem. Have to check to see if DVI cable is secured into their specify slots?

Try DVI and VGA on the monitor, and try both ports on the graphics card.
