2nd monitor takes a while to turn on

I have had 4 people via 3 various brand also LCD monitors experience a strange concern. The monitors have started taking up to 10 min for them to rotate on from a cold start. We have updated the video drivers, BIOS and also mounted the correct monitor inf files. 

This seemed to start around 2 weeks back and also is happening even more regularly currently.

You watching: 2nd monitor takes a while to turn on

They all usage on-board video, VGA and use the Intel chipsets.

 

I am leaning on it being a BIOS config establishing or a Windows Upday concern. Any suggestions would be great!

Swap monitors. Do the problem monitors work in one more location? Do other monitors job-related in the difficulty location through the difficulty PCs?

That surely is an odd trouble.

My only guess is to check power settings. If they are plugged into a spilgrimage or battery backup, sindicate try without and view if this produces the exact same results.

Also be a good concept to contact the power company. I had actually a instance one time where our power was surging external of the building, ended up burning alot of electronic devices and it was bereason the power suppliers line on the pole was not grounded correctly. But if that was an problem, you would notice other gadgets acting strange or burning up.

I"m a little perplexed on your wording, the monitors taking 10 mins to turn on, but your checking PC components.

Can you remote to the computer the monitors are linked to? Try to differentiate between the monitor having the worry or the computer offering the signal. I understand they are various brand LCDs, but make certain they are being gave a signal (or not) as soon as you hit the power switch on the Computers.

I second Dennis" suggestions, and also move the monitors of concern to other known "good" Computers, and also move recognized "good" monitors to the Computers of worry.

Does the concern follow the monitors, the Computers or both? If it"s both, you"re in trouble! ;)

We tried relocating the monitors roughly the the concern adheres to the monitors. the "bad" monitors cause the exact same concerns on different systems.

Several of the monitors are 3+ yrs old and also one is new

 

I think the concern is age and power in this structure.

The monitor is independent of the BIOS. Unplug the monitor from the computer system and also turn it on, deserve to you access the menu"s of the monitor appropriate away? If not, eliminate them. You deserve to obtain 19" under $100 and 24" under $200 nowadays.

I recognize yours are various brands, yet the last set of monitors I had go bad were on two different computer systems, exact same model of Samsung. Sometimes unplugging the power and also plugging ago in would assist it come up.
