    I know this is nothing to do with windows vista but I do not know where I
    could post this question.

    The problem is I have now moved over to a 20" Asus PW201 LCD monitor which
    is connected to a Vida 7900 GTO graphics card (I used to have a 20 CRT
    monitor). The problem is when I hibernate and switch the monitor off and I
    go to restart the computer (switching the monitor on first) the monitor says
    that there is no signal?

    Any help or information would be gratefully appreciated

    If someone knows a better place to post this sort of question it would be
    good to know as well.

    Many thanks

    Verify that S3 is enabled in the bios and that video resume from S3
    is enabled.

    Dennis thanks for your reply.

    I have done some tests and it seems that if I hibernate and leave the
    monitor switched on I have no problems when the computer switches back on?
    next time I reboot I shall check that setting in the BIOS.

    Thanks for the reply Rick.

    I went to the Asus website and unfortunately there are no downloads for
    I had a look on the supplied CD and there are no monitor.inf files there

    I have an NVidia 7300GS on an Asus P5WD2 Premium running vista RC2 and I
    have the same problem. If I reboot with the LCD off then the system loses
    the second display on the DVI connection, its a bugger to get it redetected.
    I have simply had to ensure that I only turn it off manually, and make
    absolutely sure that the LCD is on when the machine is resterted.

    The same thing used to happen on XPMCE2005

    If you find out any information I'd be grateful if you could post it here as
    its a real PITA!
