Default Monitor goes into stanby mode upon startup

Hi all,

I was hoping that someone would have some insight into the following: I recently installed XP and upon startup, my monitor goes into standby mode. This happens whether or not the monitor is on at startup or if I turn it on after startup.

But: If I disconnect the cable from my cp before startup, and then plug it back in after about 30 seconds (approx startup time) the monitor works fine.

Does anyone have a cure for this inconvenience? Is it hardware or software related?

I had the same problem with a BNC monitor, I numbered it down to a driver error. What type of monitor is it? If it's a VGA then it might be hardware related but I'm willing to bet that it's a driver error? Have you tried any other monitors?
