20+ minutes to load W7 on Acer LCD monitor

Acer Al1716 silver/black 17

Specs: Windows 7
I just bought a new Compaq Presario with Windows 7 and it takes 20+ minutes to load when starting up (I did not buy a new monitor and I am using the acer AL1716 I already had). My previous computer had Windows XP and loaded with no problems. I took the Compaq back to the store where I bought it and it loaded up on the store monitor with no problem. It appears this problem is related to the acer AL1716 monitor. When I checked the acer website, it does not list Windows 7 as a compatible operating system with this monitor. Is there a fix for this or do i just need to buy a new monitor?

Have you tried booting into Windows Safe Mode (F8 at start up)?

The monitor should be compatible.

Are you using any type of adapter between the monitor and the tower?
