Hi Whitehooder,

Please check the monitor with a different video cable. If possible check this monitor on different system to isolate the point of failure.

As the other monitor is working fine it is unlikely to be an issue with the system. If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact us.

How do you have it connected ? DVI, VGA, HDMI ?

I notice in your specs your are using Windows 7 Enterprise.
I recommend inquiring for help with your I.T. Department.
Most I.T. Departments don't like people doing things on one of their system without permission.

His IT dept. probably abandoned that system, now pretty old parts, weird things happen...

I assume OP meant the monitor magically works when the system is restarted ONLY?

I wouldn't bother turning the offending monitor off then, except when system is turned off.

LCD/LED monitors use very little power.

If you must troubleshoot it, find another video card and monitor, those are the likely failure points, cable should be more than just 'oh look I won't work if the monitor off and on button is pressed'.

I vote for it being monitor, it might be requiring a warm up period before working again after turning off, I had one do that before.

Crashing After Turning off Monitor
Using Win 7 Pro 64bit. Every time I turn off the monitor I either see a blank screen, or the taskbar is gone or the PC is in terminal sleep (can't be awakened). I usually have to reboot. If I leave the monitor on, these things don't happen. Any hints as to why this might occur? Thanks. PRS
