Boot Up Dont Work Until Reset Is Hit

Okay, at what point in the boot process does the monitor go to sleep?

During the POST?

While Windows is loading?

What version of Windows are you using?

If XP, I suspect a device driver issue.
Either you need to update the video card driver, or install the manufactures driver for the monitor.

If Windows 98 / Me, I suspect an issue with the Windows large memory bug.
There is a problem in the 9X code that is VERY configuration dependant. The bug can cause all kinds of strange problems with more than 511MB of RAM installed.

The only other thought I have, is to double check that the CPU front side buss and clock multiplier are set correctly.

Yes, this is strange.

On the hardware side, make sure that the AGP card is fully seated into the slot.

If I suspect that a card is not seated, I remove the metal bracket and see if it goes in further.

I've had to shim a number of motherboards and / or modify the card bracket to get AGP cards to seat fully.

From a software side, all that is in play during POST is the motherboard BIOS and the video card BIOS.

Check for updates from BOTH manufactures.

In BIOS settings, make sure that the video related settings match those recommended by the card manufacture.

First display device to AGP

AGP aperture must be at least as large as the video RAM, and should be double that.

You can try different speed and acceleration settings.

Next, it could be a device conflict.
See if the problem goes away when you remove plug-in cards.

I will give this some more thought, and get back to you if I have any more ideas.
