I'm not sure just when it stopped. I recently got a new HP printer and installed its driver and software. I just uninstalled that and the boot info. still doesn't show.
Now the monitor is blank dark except for the Microsoft XP screen (with the "busy bar" or progress meter) and the the log-in screen. The monitor's orange power-on-but-not-communicating-with-computer light doesn't show at all and the blue connected light is on when the above mentioned screens are on. It also flashes briefly once or twice.
I vaguely remember a setting either in the bios or in some control panel screen to show that or not. Can't find it now.
