Thanks for the reply hamluis. I read through your link and I dont think I'm at that point. This really isnt that big of an issue for me since I dont turn my computer off all that much. It's just eating at me and I like solving problems so I figure I'll try and figure out why its giving me a black screen on startup only from shutdown.
My computer turns on (hard drives, fans, cd-rom drives, etc.) but no video will go to the monitor until I replug the DVI adapter and power supply cord. Doing that will produce video every time to my monitor. I have taken the video card out and put it back in about 3-4 times now and it's still doing the same thing. I play games and watch videos with no problem, like I said, the only issue I run into is when I shut down my computer.
