For the last week or so, on some occasions when I power up my PC and turn on the monitor, the screen of the monitor stays blank. The LED? light turns green.

I power down the PC by holding the power-on button in. I then try again until it works properly.

What is the problem? Solution?

@gollum,
Have you checked the cables?

@gollum,
Have you tried not turning the monitor off with the power button? Just shut the computer down and see if you still have the problem on powerup.

Have you tried not powering down your PC? Just leave it on. Not sure if it's a best practice, but I always leave my desktops running.

@gollum,
What kind of monitor?

What kind of PC?

It could be it isn't the monitor at all. Are you sure the PC is starting up properly?
Can you hear beeps from the PC? Are they the same beeps each time it starts up and the monitor doesn't come on?

When you are powering up the PC has it been off for a while before you restart?

Check your video card is properly seated.
Poorly seated memory can also cause a computer to hang.

Try turning on the monitor first and then turning on the PC. Do you see the start up information? If so, and then blank when the OS starts up, then it isn't the monitor but an issue with the PC hardware or software.

Unplug the computer. Open the computer, blow out all the dust. (Don't use a vacuum as that can cause static electricity and fry your computer) Ground yourself by touching the metal case then push down on everything that is in a slot on the computer. PCI cards and memory. If you feel comfortable doing it, you can remove the cards and put them back in.
