Monitor displays slowly after the computer starts.
My monitor starts slowly after the computer is been started.it takes 5minutes to start,as soon the monitor starts it runs fine.
When I leave my 4-yr old DELL Dimension 2400 computer, it goes to sleep and the MAG monitor goes to sleep, too, with the green light turning yellow. When I shake the mouse, the computer wakes up but the monitor does not start up for maybe 5 minutes or 10 minutes depending on how long the comuter has been asleep. When the monitor does come on, it is quick and bright and and works fine. Any help would be appreciated. Selimo

Restart the computer. As soon as the bios start screen displays, start hitting F8, about once a second. You will eventually get the windows start menu. Use "Last known good..." or VGA mode. Last known good should do it. If not, VGA mode will allow you to get into windows and change your resolution settings, then reboot and get back to work.
This generally is a sign that there is no signal coming from the computer. So--if the computer is not actually starting, you have a problem. If it is starting and you can get a video signal on another monitor, you've found the problem. If a second monitor does not display anything, then you will need to start troubleshooting all the components. I'd cover all that, but you haven't told me enough to help you really get a start. The very first thing I'd do is eliminate the possibility of a bad monitor.
Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
To resolve the problem,do the following step,
1. Power on the system
2. At dell logo screen before windows xp starts to load tap on the F8 key slowly 5 to 8 times
3. Select safe mode
4 Hit enter on the next screen and logon using the administrator or your name
5. Do the system restore, when you have logged on, this would return your system back to the date when it was working fine
6. To system restore
click start>all programs>accessories>system tools >system restore
This looks like a monitor problem, as the refreshing rate is set to high. Please try boot your PC in safe mode and then change the refreshing rate for lower that the monitor currently has. To get to those setting you wll need right klick your mouse on emtpy space on the desktop -> choose the last tab-> press btutton "advanced". To start PC in safe mode power on / restart computer
As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key
on your keyboard. Continue to do so until the Windows Advanced Options
menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers
display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the
computer and try again.
Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Safe mode menu item, and then press Enter.
This not necceserly need to be F8 key, depend on Operatin System verion and the PC itself it also can be DEL or CTRL key.
