Monitor doesn't kick in at startup

  WNS Ltd 19:43 22 Feb 2004

Can any one help? Sometimes when I turn on my computer the "Green" light comes on the monitor however it doesnt display. I have to hold down the "Power" button on the tower to turn it off and then try again. After about 3 attempts of doing so it normally works. Does anybody know why this might be happening?

Have you checkthat the connection from the monitor to the graphics card is in the graphcs card properly and that the graphics card is seated correctly in the AGP slot.

as bremner said check your video connection; remove it and replace it making sure it is properly connected.

Same applies with respect to the dusb connection to the motherboard from the monitor.
