Monitor delay issues

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I recently got a couple samsung p2770hd monitors and the issue I am having is that when I turn on my pc, by the time the monitor recognizes the signal and turns itself on, windows is already at the windows 7 loading logo and I cant see the post test at all. The time it takes the monitor to turn on just skips right past it. I should mention that I have an i7 build, so it takes a good 5 to 10 seconds for that initial motherboard beep which should be plantly of time for my monitor to recognize the dvi signal. This issue is very annoying. It did not do this with my previous monitor and I am looking for a fix really bad because it is very annoying not being able to view my post test. Thanks guys.

oh wow. I noticed on of my monitors to wake up later than other, but that long, I've never heard of. Have you tried different inputs?

No, my video card has dual dvi ports in the back so I have been connecting it that way. It does this on both monitors. I cant figure out what it is. I called smasung and they told me it was normal, but the people I talked to also sounded like complete idiots. I can turn it off and back on and it takes about 3 or 4 seconds both ways. Its just the time that it takes to recongize the dvi signal when I turn on the pc. When I switch the one monitor over to hdmi for tv, it recognizes that instantly. It puts itself into a power saving mode like all monitors. Its not off, but once it recognizes a signal it will turn on. I cant figure out for the life of me why it takes so long to display the boot process. Its very annoying. If there is a way to keep the monitor on all the time even when there is no signal, I could give that a try but I didnt even see that in the menu options. The only reason this is bugging me is if something does go wrong I wont be able to see it on the post test, or maybe somehow my computer would get into an endless restart loop and I wouldnt even notice because the thing takes so long to turn on once the pc is powered on.

with my gts250
bios only posts to one of the monitors, then windows turns on the other (way before the dektop shows)

when i had the 7600gt (agp) it would post to both and keep them on through startup
is there a bios or card firmware setting that will allow it to post to both?

I had a Samsung 24 Inch and had the same probleme....u can set the input on the screen manualy to DVI wich will make it a bit faster then the automatic settings and most of the time your video card don't show anything before the "bips" after 5-10 sec. Wich mean that your dosent take too long to go (5 sec the post....maybe another 5 sec windows...) wich under 10 sec wich is not too bad...

I've tried renaming the dvi connection to pc, dvi, and dvi pc with no difference. I went into the bios and told it to look for pci-e x first, with no difference. Have not found a bios setting or video card setting anywhere for this. I cant find a way to keep the monitor on because I think that has something to do with it. When its coming out of its sleep mode, its like powering it on again. I haven't been able to find anything. Mine used to boot with both monitors, but I switched the connections on the back op my pc, and it loads windows all on one monitor now.

I'm using two dvi ports and I have my directv hooked up to hdmi. When I turn the cable box off it just displays no signal. When I turn my pc off it seems to shut off the monitor and put it to sleep which takes forever to wake up from. If I switch to two hdmi ports then I would have to hook my cable box up another way. The thing is that it didn't do this with my previous monitor with the same connections.
