I have been helping a friend that has a HP Pavilion machine with 6 gigs of Ram and a dual core processor. When I first turn on the machine the monitor will display no signal and go to sleep.  


If I restart the computer it will do the same thing again and usually after I restart the machine several times it will start and work perfectly.  I don't understand why.


I have changed the cords and checked to make sure the connections are seated properly.  I have looked and the VGA connector is on the motherboard.  Could it be that the connector is going bad and needs to have a VGA PCIe card put in one of the slots. I don't want to have my friend stand the expense of a card especially when it does it works fine until the next time I start the machine.


I ran through the HP Diagnostic Tests and none show any problems.  Any additional ideas would sure be appreciated.

What is the model of this Pavilion?


Is Windows 10 the original operating system for this computer?


Have you tried another monitor?


You posted that you tried a different VGA cord.  Is this a known working cable?  Have you tried the cord on another computer to be sure it works?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
