    computer doesnt recognize monitor

    Ok, heres the issue;
    For the last week at work the computer I use does not seem to recognize that there is a monitor there, that is, its a constant black screen.
    The computer is otherwise running just fine, I've check that everything, both inside and outside are connected....the weird part is after maybe 10-20 attempts of just turning the power on/off it starts just fine and runs perfect.

    Check to see if the issue is with the monitor, or with the computer.

    Connect the monitor to another computer to test it.

    Is the monitor receiving power?

    - If it is the computer; and you're using a dedicated graphics card with multiple ports, try plugging the monitor into the second port.

    - If it is the monitor; and you're not comfortable opening it up and fixing it yourself, you may have to get a new monitor.

    its the computer
    other note, ive tested the video card as well: not the issue

    edit: it is receiving power, however once its on it almost instantly goes to power save mode(and stays there)
    I've also already tested all the video ports/on board graphics

    did you try to unplug everything from/to the monitor? (with your computer turn off ofc), and maybe some cleaning of the connectic (remove dust, bugs...)?
