Samsung SyncMaster 226BW monitor flickers on startup

This monitor flickers when I start the computer.  I can still see the desktop but it is very dark.  Turning on and off doesn't seem to help. Neither does unplugging. BUT it will clear up on it;s own after about 5 minutes. I have 2 other monitors connected and they are fine.  Once it's on, it stays on.

Thanks for the help

I notice that there are a lot of references to bad capacitors that may cause this problem as well
