I am experiencing 2 problem with display

1)When I load up my PC and log into my account, sometimes the windows taskbar color is wrong (grey). I run dxdiag and under display my gpu is not detected. Though restarting my computer solves this.

2)PC starts, keyboard and mouse lights up but no input is detected by my monitor. Doing a hard restart a few times solves this.

I think the problem lies with my gpu. Any solutions?

The GPU may only need to be reseated and/or the inside of the case given a clean out (particularly the GPU and memory card slots)

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is a brand name provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

It does sound like the video card is not fully seated or the contacts are dirty. I've seen cases where the motherboards lying too low thus not allowing slot cards to seat fully. That usually mean that the standoffs were too short.
