    I have an older monitor and after being on for quite sometime it will either go blank (all blue - no display) or have striations across the screen. I turn it off and immediately on again and it comes back to life. I haven't been able to switch to another computer yet to test as to whether it is the monitor or onboard video. If the onboard video is going out rather than the monitor can one add a video card and run the monitor from it? Thank you in advance.

    Yes. You may have to disable the onboard video.
