No Display on Monitor until I tinker with buttons on Monitor
Hopefully this is the correct sub-forum.
I had my Ryzen rig in bedroom and the Intel rig in hall. Due to some personal reasons (more like pressured by the missus ) I had to shift the Intel rig to bedroom and Ryzen to hall. I did not change the Monitors - only the entire cabinet. After the shift Intel started up fine and worked good with the Monitor in bedroom. Ryzen rig also started up. I could see the Windows 8 tile logo at the boot screen. But then display went off and I saw a "Cable Not connected" message on the Monitor (Its BenQ GL2460) in hall. I thought the cable is not tightly fixed at the HDMI slot so I shutdown and refixed the HDMI cable properly. Powered it up and again the same issue - saw the Windows 8 boot screen and then no display with "Cable Not connected" message. This time I pressed 1 of the buttons in the Monitor nad it showed 3 options for display type - VGA, DVI and HDMI. I selected HDMI and after 10 seconds or so display came on. I saw my desktop wallpaper and it worked. I thought the issue is fixed and did not try again.
Today morning again the same thing happened. I had to press a button on the Monitor and select HDMI and it worked (although it took 10 secs for the display to come on screen after pressing the HDMI button). So out of curiousity I restarted my system. Again the Windows 8 boot screen appeared and then no display so I pressed the button on the Monitor which gives me the 3 options. This time I selected DVI but there was no display even after waiting for 2-3 mins. Then I selected HDMI and there was display.
Has anybody in the forum ever experienced this sort of issue before? Or any clue on how to fix this? Or should I assume either the Monitor or the GPU is about to conk off?
Sorry for such a long post and thanks for the patience to read it.
