Black and white monitor screen

  NoobSaibot 20:11 28 Feb 2006

I have recently bought a Powercolor X850 XT AGP and quite often whenever i switch on the computer after the boot screen the display goes black and white (Like an abstract design) and i have to switch off from the mains to restart the monitor. Sometimes it happens alot on startup. Then once everything is up and running no problems at all. Help me out here please!! Thanks

Is it the computer you have to switch off at the mains, or the monitor?

well i have 1 switch which turns off all of my pc (monitor and cpu). I have tried turning off the monitor with its power button but nothing happens the led goes orange rather than green, so i have to switch off everything.

You could just unplug the monitor.

Try taking out the video card, cleaning its contacts with a clean pencil eraser, then re-installing it.
Sometimes works with problems of this kind.
