When I start to boot up I hear everything loading(e.g. Skype unique sound) but the monitor doesn't display anything. Then I found that if I wait a few minutes the screen comes to life. I first had a DVI cable connection, and when I first had this problem I added a VGA cable and it seemed to work (i.e. the diplay showed VGA Input).

Is it the LCD display that is bad, the Video Card? Please offer a hint or two. Thanks.

Hi RETVIC, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

If I understand this correctly, you lost output signal while using the DVI cable, but were able to function using a VGA connection?

 

Did you try using a different DVI cable to rule out the cable as the culprit?

 

Is the quality of the display as good as it had been previously?

 

Please post the manufacturer and model of this computer.

The model is a Gatewat FPD1975, TFTLCD Monitor. The display is fine using the VGA cable. What causes the delay on start-up?

In order to be able to help you I need the information requested in my previous post.  In addition please do the following.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When the  FileHippo website opens, click on Download latest version in the upper left pane.

 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

 Checkmark the following checkboxes:

 Click on Go to start the scan.  Once it is finished highlight the text, copy it and paste it in your next post.

The list is too complicated for me. Why didn't you ask for my ssn, dob etc. at the same time.

Because that information will not help repair your computer.

 

The Speccy will provide us with information which will help understand what is going on with this computer.  The instructions are simple when taken one step at a time.  If you need clarification with any of the instructions just ask for help with it.
