    Either your monitor or your video card are going out, if you have an integrated video, then it is more likely your monitor. The only way to really tell is to borrow another monitor and replace the current one, then observe and see if the issue persists:
    Yes: Video going out
    No: Monitor going out
    It could also be an issue with a loose cable, so check that first.

    yes the cable that connects the video card to the monitor.
    OK so if the issue continues with a different monitor and it is not a loose cable, then it has to be your video card. If you have onboard video, remove the video card and connect the monitor to the onboard video then observe if the issue persists. You must remove the video card, because while it is installed your onboard video is disabled.
