Hi everyone

Forgive me If I'm not in the right forum, this was the nearest I could find.

On booting my PC is acting strange, the monitor stays dark, power led stays dark (normal green when on & active) and I can hear when it reaches the desktop and certain apps start up (Skype ete) via sound effects but the monitor stays dark! I move the USB mouse around & tap keyboard keys but nothing happens. Take a few minutes before it does suddenly display, without any input from me. The power settings I've checked, I have it set Power on Always for ALL options & Hibernation is OFF.


OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 2047 Mb
Graphics Card: RADEON 9200 SERIES, 128 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 38193 MB, Free - 14312 MB; D: Total - 610328 MB, Free - 196168 MB; F: Total - 117232 MB, Free - 81297 MB;
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., GA-8S661FXM-775

Any ideas welcome :icon_wink:
