Monitor stays in "Idle mode" during boot. Tags: Graphics Cards Boot Windows Vista Monitors Graphics Last response: May 3, 2009 12:19 PM in Graphics & Displays Share sarqune May 3, 2009 11:01:09 AM Hello, I've been having this problem for a while now. When I boot my PC up I don't see anything on the screen until its in vista. And sometimes the screen is still in idle even though it's in vista and I have to drag all cables in and out etc to get it working. Now my question is. What could be wrong? / Sarqune Specs Asus P5-n 32-e SLI 8800GT 4gb ram Q6600 clocked 2,7ghz Corsair 750W More about : monitor stays idle mode boot | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove sarqune May 3, 2009 12:19:21 PM I got another monitor it's very old and has some weird issues, but i'll try. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Monitor stays in "Idle mode" during boot.> Related ressources: ForumCrosshair II doesnt boot , monitor stays in sleep ForumScreen turns off during powersaving but backlight stays lit ForumStudio 17 Screen Stays Black Every Second Boot from Shutdown ForumCore i7 860 suddenly always stays at 2.9 Ghz and Windows booting issue ForumHard drive light stays on and system slow ForumMonitor stays off too long after boot ForumI5 2500K 4.7 GHz stable in Prime95 but fails during boot up ForumAsus P8Z68-V - VGA LED Stays lit.
