Months later, the same problem persists.
Unfortunately PCNetSpecs' excellent instructions are still beyond my rudimentary Linux skills, so until I can find my brave pills and give it a go, I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? ( Monitor going in to sleep mode)
The original monitor that came with the PC, the one I prefer, still goes to sleep mode every now and then when I start up, stating 'no VGA Input'. I can boot up the PC and monitor every day for weeks and there's no problem and then for a few days it'll be a case of switching off and on tens of times until the screen kicks into life. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it? Not a massive drama but definitely irritating.
