I am using a MacMini 2018 running Ventura 13.3.1. It is connected via a USB-C to display port cable to an ASUS ProArt PA32UCX-K. When I turn on the MacMini, more often than not the screen stays dark. When that happens the only way to get the MacMini to display anything on the screen is to shut it off (by long press of the power button) and then restarting it. It then boots into recovery mode and I can manually restart it.
It seems to me that the cable is ok, otherwise the screen would not be visible in recovery mode and thereafter.
