Im using Windows XP home SP3, that normally runs without any problems.
Once in a while, I will start the computer "with the monitore turned OFF". The reason being, I'm going to eat breakfast first.
If i start the computer with the monitor turned off, and then after a bit I come in and turn on the monitor, the LED on the monitor will be yellow or orange ( I forget ), but the important thing is, if i move the mouse around, it does NOT turn the LED to blue and show anything on the monitor.
When I do this, I have to turn the computer off and then turn it back on again before the monitor will display stuff.
I'm pretty sure it must be an XP setting, cause if I start the computer with the monitor ON, this problem never arises.
Anyone have an idea what is going on?

Switch " off " your monitor and " on " again instead of rebooting your PC.
