DVI Help ATI 9600 card

David Wells

I have a Angus K8V delux mother board and a Princeton Monitor and ATI
9600 card.. When I hook up the Monitor with the DVI cable and push the
start button on the front of my computer it will not fire up at all no
fan or anything start up. I find if f I make sure that there is no
power to the Monitor fire up the computer first then it start ok. Then
power on the monitor it also works fine with the DVI hook up. If I
hook up the Monitor using the analog input it does not matter which
order I fire things up. Can anyone help me with this.

Sounds like a monitor quirk. I use a 9600 Pro DVI into a Samsung DLP
TV. It makes no difference what is powered first, the DVI always works
fine.

It's something you'll have to live with, probably. This is nothing new. From
what I heard, in the old days it was absolutely essential to power up
external SCSI drives in the right order, else DOS/Windows would rearrange
the drive letters and make a mess.

Of course, if you are fussy, check the power outlets into which your monitor
and PC are plugged. Make sure there are no ground faults in the wiring. You
can check this with an outlet tester available at Radio Shack.
