Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, Athlon64x23ghz, 3gb

Monitor does not start up - so incomplete boot. After letting computer run for a while and several reboots ( holding in power button) monitor will eventually start up.

I know and am sorry but it was time critical. Had to make a quick decision and thought it best to replace the computer - was a bit hesitant to do that as I really was not looking forward to installing all the programs etc again. I was going to use Easy Transfer for moving files if sysprep did not work - but it worked well so I just installed the old hard drive in the new computer. All seems to go well...
Thank you all!

Are you starting up from a fully shutdown state or some power saving mode?

There's probably nothing wrong with the monitor, the problem is most likely within the tower. Could be an issue with the graphics card or something else. How about listing the system specs?

Thank you. I know it is not the monitor as I tried it on another machine, also tried the DVI cable on other machines - not problem. It seems the computer has to warm up before it boots up completely... This is a workstation in a medical office so I just have to find a new tower as time is critical. Was hoping for an "obvious" solution. But decided that it probably is faster just to get a new tower.
Thank you.

"Was hoping for an "obvious" solution"

We can't supply a possible solution without knowing anything about the system.
