PC has no video when cold.
I'm working on this compter that has integrated video. when the computer id first started, there is a black screen. But of the computer is left to run for a bit, then restarted the viedo works fine, with not proplems. Once the PC is turned of and left alone for a while uppone reactivation the same problem happens.
I've checked both sticks of RAM, and the monitor, and the RAM slots. Made sure the screws were tight, and everything was clean and dust free. My next step wil be to double check that the Power supply is good, and barring that, I'm starting to think that the board is suffering from chip creep. any ideas?
