Question Samsung Syncmaster 2493HM keeps cycling inputs on startup

either there are no threads about this or I just suck at searching, but I have not been able to find any answer or anyone with the same problem as me. I recently updated my computer hardware, minus the monitor and graphics card, so I still am not sure what is causing this. However every time I start my computer and monitor it keeps cycling between HDMI, analog, and finally digital when it finds the correct input (using DVI, but also have the HDMI connected for my PS3). It's very annoying and unnecessary, it takes about 20 seconds before I can see anything. Kind of kills the point of having an SSD when the monitor is the bottleneck of fast booting.

What card do you have? Did you try disconnecting the HDMI cord to your PS3? I think it is getting confused. Did you install proper video drivers? CCC/Nvidia Control Center?

Go into your monitor's OSD menu and see if there's a setting to change from "Auto" to a specific input each time. That way it doesn't cycle through them all.
