I have a benq gl2450hm 24 inch monitor connected to my 7850 via dvi. however I need my monitor to be on all the time as it takes a few seconds to turn on from standby when it reiceves a siginal from my pc. this means i cannot see the bsod screen or motherboard screen or other important information which is really annoying. I cant find a setting in the menu for my monitor that stops m monitor from going into standby when there is no siginal? any ideas? thanks! :)

There is no such setting on the monitor. The only way to keep the monitor powered up is to have your PC always send it a signal. . .

I have had the same issue, and all you need to do is hit control-alt-delete after a few seconds once or twice to see the BIOS messages. That gives your monitor time to fire up the backlight. . .

Just as a quick fix, turn your monitor off then on, when you turn on your computer.

Yes, that is another solution that may work.
