Problems with monitor going to sleep on boot

Recommended Posts

I have a relatively old Dell 3008WFP 30" monitor (I think I bought in in 2009 or so). It has served me well, but lately I have had issues with it. When I turn my computer on in the morning, the monitor wakes up and shows me bios followed by the boot screen and rotating loading icon (win10). Once the desktop loads, the monitor just simply goes to sleep. I have an old Acer monitor I hook up and windows loads just fine. If I unplug the acer and plug in my dell without rebooting, it begins working flawlessly. I can not figure out if my monitor is dying or if my video drivers are borked or even if my video car is defective. My 780 died in January and EVGA replaced it under warranty for a 970 (prob refurb).

 

Because of so many variables, I can not really pin point the issue. Has anyone seen this before?

Do you have both the Dell and Acer monitors hooked up at the same time or just one or the other?

Any other system you can test the Dell on to see if it does the same thing after a boot?

I would, but unfortunately it started working again randomly. I'll try with a laptop I have next time. I hate this issue so much! Random and unable to isolate it

Try it with the laptop when you can and see if it does the same thing after a cold boot. If you can reproduce it successfully, it will help narrow down the cause.

 

What kind of a cable do you connect the monitors with?
