Monitor Turns on Randomly

Specs: Windows XP
I have a brand new desktop Dell computer that I bought and hooked up. I didnt have a problem the FIRST time I started it up but after that I have. I will turn on the desktop, the power supply turns over and the fan runs. The CD tray light flickers like normal. Whats different is that the monitor wont turn on. It blinks like its on but no signal but wont switch over. Sometimes I have to turn the desktop off and back on 3-4 times before the monitor comes on.

I could leave the desktop on (when it works) and leave the computer on for days.... and turn the monitor on/off and its fine. But as soon as I shutdown I will have to go back to turning the desktop on/off before the monitor comes on.

Anyone have any idea what this is? Monitor is going up? Desktop is faulty?

Thanks for the help

Don't mess with it. Call Dell and have them fix it.
