Bingo snap exactly the same. It's 100% the monitor and MSI know about it. I've been in dialogue with them since a week now (they did get back to me eventually), and they have offered some firmware updates etc but none of it is working. I NEED the POST and like you it's hit and miss if the panel will even go on at Windows login - I too have to turn off then on again to make it work at login.For me it's the same issue.... again!
I have 2 monitors plugged via Display in my 3080TI.... and they still go asleep on boot.
I was wondering if it was the motherboard (AM5 X670E) or the GPU or the Monitor...
When I boot the computer, the monitors wakes and then goes back to sleep (no display signal) ... I can't even see the ASUS logo etc... And then, if I'm lucky, they will awake on the Windows login screen (if they don't i can force them but turning them off and on).
Because of the not waking up situation, if i need to go in the bios, I need to plug the monitor directly in MOBO and not the GPU.
Got all the firmware updated and was a little better but still...
It sucks because the monitors are soo nice but it'S hard to recommend them when they are not working so well...
Hope MSI will fix them....
Thanks for the info... let me know if you find out or figure it out... i'll do the same...Bingo snap exactly the same. It's 100% the monitor and MSI know about it.

Very, VERY bad firmware and buggy programming here, and it actually happened to an extend on my old 3090, but it's even worse on this 4090. Which is an MSI card!
They clearly rushed this product. It's a great monitor when it works, truly the best I've used, but it's so unreliable.
Can't help you on this but I MAY have made a mild breakthrough having updated the panel to all the most recent firmware - MSI said to disable autoscan (which I already had) and turn power button to standby, which I thought I had. Turned out the latter I hadn't, and ever since I put it to standby, the thing is behaving a LOT better. Not perfect, and a bit slow, but mostly turning on when it should.Does anyone have access to the original firmware that shipped with the monitor? I'm wondering if I can just revert back and see if the problem resolves.
When I tried HDMI when I first got the 4090 and learned of all these issues with the monitor, it didn't make any difference for me at the time, but I don't know now with all the updates and MSI advice, and I am absolutely not touching the thing now it seems to be mostly behaving a bit better.I'm sorta wondering.... since my monitors are plugged via Display, if I was using HDMI if it would fix the issue or be better...
Anyone? (before I re-wire my whole desk for it).
The sad thing is, this was not an issue with earlier firmware, so they COULD fix it back to how it was.Hi Everyone, I just bought this monitor yesterday and it's proving to be a right pain. Wish I seen this thread first. Makes the KVM almost unusable because if you switch the monitor to a device which has "Turned off" the displays due to the power settings, it won't wake that device.
Solution is to spam a key on the keyboard, and that'll usually fix it. If it comes up saying DP NO DISPLAY, then press the joystick at the back then mash a key, and that'll get it to come through.
Absolutely unacceptable that MSI hasn't bothered addressing this. I'm tempted to return the thing.
