iiyama monitor won't turn on until booted into OS (Dual boot set up, custom built pc)


Hey

I have been dual booting my XP and Ubuntu for a while now. However, my pc monitor does not turn on until I am booted into windows/linux. This means I have to 'guess' to a certain extent which OS to select on boot (using GRUB). I expect I will have to change a setting in the BIOS but I am not too sure what to look out for... Could someone point me in the right direction please?

In addition to this problem, I have a second. After turning on my pc I have to restart it for it too do anything, it appears to just hang!However as I cannot see what is happening due to the monitor problem I am completely in the dark as to why it would do this/what is going on! I have XP installed at the front of my hard drive and Ubuntu at the back. It worked ok the first time I tried it after install (still had the monitor problem but was able to guess) then after that this random problem!

Thanks guys.

What video card do you have? If you don't know run this from a command line terminal:
lspci
and post the results.

^^ note that I believe you must run lspci as root or with sudo.
