Try different power cable for monitor or even different power source.

That definitely looks like a monitor issue to me. Intermittent connection. As you've already tried a different cable to the monitor, its either the video controller board in the monitor, or the flat ribbon between the video controller board, and the LCD itself.

I scored a monitor off eBay that had a similar issue, and it was just a loose connection to the LCD inside the monitor. I'm still using it now as my main monitor. smile.gif

EDIT : Oh, and a silly idea, have you tried the caveman method when it happens, tapping the top of the screen? Sometimes a good slap/kick can fix things (Or break them more!) biggrin.gif

I hope it is something like a loose connection, i will be swapping monitors tomorrow. How did you fix your monitor?

I took it apart, fitted the ribbon connector properly, as it was half out (and added hot glue to stop it happening again) , re-capped the PSU as it had some bad caps, and ended up modding a laptop webcam into the top of the casing, and a USB connector to the back connector panel to connect it. smile.gif
