monitor isnt recognized.

When I first turn on my computer in the morning the monitor doesn't recognize anything. But then if I turn off the computer and then turn it back on the monitor works. How can I avoid having to restart my computer every time I turn it on?

thanks for the help.

Are you doing a proper shut down every night?

I had this problem before on my previous build, but it only happened every once in a while.
Did you check the card and see if it is seated correctly?
