"No signal" message on monitor

  Baz48 20:32 09 Jun 2009

I am running XP Home through an Nvidia 8800GTX to a Benq FP241 WZ monitor, via DVI-D.

If I switch on the PC before the monitor I get a no signal message, even switching the monitor off and on several times. I then have to reboot.Switching the monitor on first is OK.

This is really annoying when I forget. Any advise please?

Unplug both the mains and VGA cables from the monitor, they may just need reseating?

Done this ,out of curiosity, but if it was a connection problem why does it work everytime when monitor is switched on first?
