My Envision LCD Monitor wont turn on when i power up my computer. All i see is a yellow light on the screen power button. I try to hit the power button on the monitor and it turns on but doesn't display windows xp log in screen. So i manually have to hit the power button on the computer to shut it down, then i powder it back up and the monitor becomes in sync with the computer and goes through boot up like it should.

Do know whats causing this? It happens every other day but not all the time.

ATI X1950 Pro video card

Your system credentials indicate you have an Asus p4p800 motherboard which according to what I could find on the net is a Socket 478 motherboard with an AGP slot.
The ATI X1950Pro graphics card seems to be PCIe X16

Would you please clarify exactly what system you are running this card in and include full spec of the powersupply as I suspect you have a PSU issue

The ATI X1950Pro is NOT a PCI card. They made both, PCI and AGP versions. My version is the AGP 8x version. It is impossible to fit a PCI card inside a AGP slot with-out doing heavy modifications.

My power supply is 550 watts i believe, plenty enough for what i am running.

Like it i said, it does this maybe once every 2 days. I shut down my computer about 2 times a day or at least send it to power sleep mode.

do you think it might be the actual monitor failing? Bad driver? Bad bios driver? Today it took like 6 different attempts to turn on the monitor :(

I think it has to do something with my BIOS or windows xp boot up mode. I notice again today that the keyboard light didn't even come on. (usually it comes on by welcome screen) I am thinking it didn't even past the post part.

Anybody know any boot up repair commands but for merged SATA hard drives?

Should i also do a bios flash?
