If the monitor is too old then I would replace it. It could also be a video card issue. Try the same monitor on a different computer (or video card). If it's solved, then the video card is the problem. If not, the monitor is the problem.

I've had the same problem. Twice! It was my video card. It was a high performance card that was believed to be overheating. After 2 replacements, we got a different card. Haven't had the problem again.

Cool it man...

If you’re running a big video card like I am, a Radeon 7000 64 Meg AGP then I would cool it. No big deal, Radio Shack, a 2” or 3” wafer fan and a 12 volt wall wart. www.thermaltake.com also offers many solutions to cooling video, memory etc. There are others rather than Thermaltake but that’s just who I use.
