How Can I Fix Long Monitor Startup Delay

My monitor remains in powersaver mode until windows logon screen comes up. This started happening a while ago and i have been putting off asking baout it. I have searched google but have found no answers. I am unable to browse bios or anything and it is really annoying.

Primary Monitor (Monitor in question): Dell ST2420L
Secondary Monitor: NS-46L780A12 (Insignia Television)
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX590
Windows 7 64-bit

Steps to reproduce problem:
1. Turn on computer
2. Monitor does not display until logon info needs to be put into windows

If anymore info is needed, let me know.

Does it do this if you disconnect the Insignia TV?

It does. I have also tried switching HDMI ports and switching to VGA instead of HDMI. No changes

Does anything show up on the TV if you disconnect the Monitor?

It sounds like the video card is not sending a signal to the monitor until Windows kicks in. This is highly unusual. I will see if I can find any info and get back if I find anything.

Try this:
Start > Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Display
Click "Detect Displays"
Select the monitor (not the TV) and then make it your "Primary Display".

See if that does it.

Try booting into the Safe Mode, reboot.

Im unsure what booting in safe mode is going to accomplish... the monitor is still going to be in hybernation mode and it is going to be difficult to start it in boot. I will have to look up the exact keystrokes since i cant see anything on my monitor...

my keyboard also takes a while to startup too i think. its hard to tell since i cant test it because i cant see whats going on!
