My new iiyama monitor has a rather annoying problem.

Quite often when it either switches istself off after inactivity or when i come to turn it on, the screen doesnt come on!

I just get a black screen! Normally by moving the mouse it becomes active again and wakes up but now it simply stays off. The light remains orange which means its currently switched on but not displaying anything as opposed to green which means its working properly.

The only solution for it is to switch my PC totally off and then on again which seems to wake it up.

It this likely to be a software problem (driver etc) or a fualt with the monitor?

Sounds like it's likely a driver problem. Have you tried installing the latest video driver for your system?
