Hello, I'm seeing a strange problem with a Windows XP machine during startup. The monitor displays everything until after the Windows load screen, then goes dark. The computer is still on and continues to load, but nothing is displayed. I have found that if I pull the power cord from the monitor and wait till it's drained of power, then plug it back in, the monitor will display the logon screen normally. This just started yesterday...

Any ideas? Time for a new monitor?

Thanks,
Joel
