Xsurfer02,
  After your computer is running for a while your video card tends to heat up, depending on the quality of your motherboard the card may slip out from it's slot..the only thing to fix this is open the computer and jam it back in there. I had this problem a while ago with my older computer.

Hope this is the answer.

Or your video card is not compeltely seated well, or, your monitor cable is giving in, or your monitor cable does not have any magnectic sheilding.

Check all those, and if still a problem, then I would start to suspect the monitor, if you can, do you have any friends that can let you borrow their monitor, new or old, for a day or two, if there monitor works w/o problems, its probably your monitor ready to die.

If same problems occur with another monitor that you know is good, then I would start checking the video card, drivers,  and cable.

Good luck
