    Have you scanned for viruses and Spyware?

    Yes, I run a scan once a week and no viruses also I have run adaware. I was wondering if maybe settings have changed somehow.

    My monitor problem all started after my screen totally froze one night and I had to shut the computer down. Then when I turned it back on, all I had was a black screen. On the third attempt, I waited a little longer and finally the monitor came on. It has done this every time since then. It takes between 5 and ten minutes to come on. Could I have done something to the settings? If so, how do I get to bios on a Dell Dimension 4400 and then what do I do once there?

    first i'd check if its the monitor and not the p.c or vice versa, have you tried other monitors?

    Thank you for the site and it did help my monitor a little but now I've noticed that after a power outage while the computer is on, when it restarts, the monitor fails to come on and I have to shut the computer off then wait a minute or so. After I turn the computer back on, it takes between 5 and 7 minutes for the monitor to come back on. I know for sure that the monitor itself isn't the problem. Any ideas from anyone?
