Monitor blacks out upon startup.

July 24, 2010 at 07:26:34
Specs: Windows XP
My monitor keeps blacking out upon startup. I can push the monitor's on/off button and whatever I'm on (desktop/web page) will flash briefly- enough to let me move my cursor a bit. Eventually it works normally but getting online is very frustrating when you can't see what you're doing. The blacking out periods seem to be getting longer also.
