Whenever my computer wakes from sleep, hibernation, or even just regular startup, the screen stays black. Strangely enough the problem goes away after a couple minutes if I turn my monitor on and off. And in fact the screen isn't completely black, if you look carefully you can see the faint outlines of my desktop and the windows and so forth.
What are the possible causes of this? Is it possible there's something wrong with the monitor itself?
