    Default Monitor problems

    Hi everyone...I have a FM2A85X Extreme 4 M with a A10 5800K and it is a awesome combo for my HTPC. This is my first AMD set up and everything was working fine until the other day. When I tried to boot the monitor would not"engage"? I had to do a hard restart for it to work. The mobo just goes to a certain part of the post and then just stops. I do a restart and all is fine. I'm using Linux Mint 14 also for the first time and before I put this all together for good (on a test bench now) I would like to resolve this if possible. Could this be a mobo problem or a monitor problem? I have the latest bios.1.30 and all drivers are up to date. As said in the beginning this just "crop"up, with no warning what so ever.Any suggestion or opinions?? I don't know where to start. I'm using the on board graphics.
    Thanks...

    Your three Acer's, how are they connected back to the MB? One each VGA, DVI, and HDMI?

    Try only the VGA to one monitor. If it works, confirm that VGA connection works across the other remaining two.

    If VGA works reliably across all three, I'd be thinking it could be HDCP related and I'd consider replacing either (or both) the DVI or HDMI cables.

    Assuming it is HDCP related, you can sub in a new HDMI cable and test too as it's probably the HDMI cable and or its end connections giving you this problem.
