hooked up this monitor to a Dell Dimension 9150 and it takes several tries before the monitor will stay on.

Monitors don't have drivers.

Your problem might be:
1) Monitor
2) Graphics card/chip
3) Software (drivers or other).

Troubleshooting:
If a DIFFERENT monitor connects fine then the Acer monitor has power issues. Probably a capacitor that has issues charging to maintain the ON state.

Since there's no good reason to turn the monitor off, leave it on always. It will go into a standby mode either automatically with PC on (Power Settings in Windows) or definitely when you turn off the PC.

When the computer is in standby mode the power portion consumes a small amount of electricity (probably sub 1W) but it avoids incurring the damage over time that repeatedly turning on the monitor causes.

I think I called it. When I google that monitor I see several references to REPAIRING the defective capacitors:

One of the things in the list of reasons is "slow start".
