I performed a new 32-bit install of Windows 7. For some reason, the monitor shuts off when windows starts. I found that after Windows boots, if I hit the "sleep" button on my keyboard, allow the computer to sleep, then wake the computer, the monitor turns on and everything is fine. Why would they force a person to put the PC into sleep mode every time the PC is booted? I have a PC with a Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H motherboard (AMD 690G chipset). I'm using the integrated graphics and I removed everything from the PC except for the drives, monitor, and mouse. I updated the BIOS with the most recent version. There doesn't seem to be a windows 7 AMD/ATI driver for the chipset. I don't get it. The PC is clearly capable of working with Windows 7, so why would the monitor shut off when booting up?
