MAG 780 LCD Monitor takes 10 minutes to come on when cold.
When I boot up my desktop, the monitor won't even blink for about 10 minutes. I have to keep pushing thepwoer button to see if its ready. The green power light comes on, then goes off, so I have to constantly press it to see if its ready. Eventually, long after the cimputer has booted ( presumably), I press the power button and the screen is on. If I restart, there is no delay, and if I boot after a short time, there is no delay.

Power supply is going in it. if you know of someone technically inclined have them check for bad capacitors in the power supply. this is typical of one that is dryed out and not letting the power supply start up as fast as it should. if it is just capacitors then it should not be an expensive fix, but don't ignore it as other parts will be stressed and fail making it much more costly.

I recently was given a MAG Model 780 too. I found the input for speakers just today. When looking at the monitor, on the left side behind the monitor you should be able to feel a flat horizontal surface. If you lay monitor down, you will see 2 mini-plug openings. These are your input spots for speakers/microphone. I believe pink is speakers & green is microphone.
No, it has a normal, seperate power cord. But the socket in the monitor is very small, it's a small round one. When facing the monitor from the back, it's located directly to the right of the monitor-stand, at the bottom-side of the screen. Just put the monitor on it's side to see it clearly.
Take a look at your power saving settings. It sounds like the monitor is set to sleep after 20 or 30 minutes. You may want to change your setting to "never". The settings are under Control Panel - Power management
The BIOS is sending the display information to the monitor but, when you turn your PC on, the LCD will be sleeping and it will take 1~2 seconds to wake up when receiving the display signal. The monitor is working and even if the BIOS messages aren't displayed, you can still press the correct keystrokes to get to the SETUP screen or press PAUSE in the keyboard to see what's going on in the POST. If your LCD has a bicolor LED indicating the status (Standby/On) keep looking at it, when the LCD gets the video data, the LED turns instantly from amber to Green or blue even if the screen is still black. This way you can have an idea when the LCD gets the initial video signal and to press the keys accordingly. Your PC will also delay the video output from the secondary video card because it's detected after the onboard card.
I have the same problem except it usually happens after Ive left my computer idle for a while... i.e . Overnight, I usually turn off the monitor and I hit the button after I come back to turn it on. I get the same flashing light for several minutes. This has been a problem for several months, but only recenly have i gotten the same error message you mentioned. Each time ive booted the computer up cold or restarted it has worked fine but this time it took longer along with displaying the message:
Top Left to Right: SH770 P001
Bottom Left to Right: AU M170EN05
Anyone else who can clear this up?
