Pc coming out of standby but monitor blank

When my PC on standby, I hit any key and the fans kick in, the hard drive rattles away a bit but the monitor gives the little 'no signal' message and goes on standby.

I then switch off everything at mains, switch PC on again and all is well?? What might be causing this?

XP SP2 Nvidia graphics card.....tell me what else you need to you.

Get the latest drivers for the graphics card as the cgraphics are staying in standby.

Thanks Fruit bat.

I've always updated drivers using the Device Manager route, (i.e. click on update drivers) and when i did that last night for the graphics card it said it was up to date.

Your suggestion kind of confirmed what I suspected as causing the fault, namely the graphics card, so i went to the nvidia site and got the latest driver and it comes out of stanby OK. BUT, the PC was coming out of standby after a new bootup before. It was after leaving it on standby all day that the monitor stayed blank. So I will try again tomorrow. Cheers.
