Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor intermittently goes dark and will not come on

\015 Having problems for about a week, monitor may jump or flash, once a white type light up the middle of the screen, then goes black. If i turn the pc off, unplug everything and wait 45 minutes or so, it may come back on. is the monitor going out? I've had about 3 years - do I need to update a driver or something? I have checked all the ''power source'' /connection problems and that's all ok.\015
