I have recently have this problem that when I start the PC the monitor enters to power saving mode and does not wake up from there (black screen all the time)

has anyone else got this same problem?

Does this occur with a different computer connected to the monitor?
You need to hard reset your monitor. e.g. unplug the monitor from the power source for a few mins then plug it back in. :thup:
unfortunately i dont have another PC to test this except my laptop but that doesnt have right plugin (it has VGA).

Grab a $5 converter to go from VGA to whatever else you need.
Well it started again today and having power off the monitor for couple of minutes did not seem to help. i just had to reboot several times to get it on.

My suggestion is still to connect your other computer to the monitor to rule out the computer as the issue.
