Monitor not starting up

My LG Flatron W2452T is usually left on "stand-by" mode after I've turned off the computer, and on re-booting, it has always started up normally. Recently however, I'm having to switch it off, then on again, before the screen appears.

Does anyone know why this should be?

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics driver

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\ - - That looks difficult (for me, at least).

If it's not too much to ask - how would I go about doing it?

What operating system are you using?.

Is the warranty and support still valid on the monitor?.

Fruit Bat: How do you update graphics drivers? Sorry, but I'm not up to speed with these matters!

Possibly 'soft start' circuitry on your LG Flatron not responding for whatever reason. Have same set up and had similar problems. Try unplugging and reconnecting both power lead and vga connector in case its a bad contact. Have there been any 'arching' sounds from your power lead on the back of the monitor? A long shot but quick fix if it is this.

Snrub - - Did what you suggested, and so far that seems to have done the trick!

Thanks for your help!
