Monitor keeps going on-off

I have a samsung SyncMaster SA350

Suddenly it keeps going off and then comes back on in 2-3 seconds. Sometimes it happens very frequently. Sometimes it happens 3-4 times a day.

At times, it keeps happening repeatedly for about half hour.

Please help!

I have windows 7 ultimate

When you say its goes off then on, does the power light go off or just the display input?

Ok sounds like a layer 1 issue.  I would check the power cable connections on both the monitor and the outlet.  If they are both snug try changing out the outlet its plugged into..  If that doesn't work you can check the samsung support website to make sure that their are no issues with the monitor with users having similar problems.
What type of video does your computer have?
What type of computer do you have?
Is the video imbedded or a PCI card?
Do you have another monitor around to test with?
 I would try another monitor as a test.
I would try putting in a pci video card if imbedded
How is your monitor plugged into power?
Power strip?  ups? or directly into wall outlet?
Probably your backlight is failing.  I had a monitor that exhibited this behavior and it turned out to be the backlight.  Luckily it was under warranty so it got fixed for nothing.  Unluckily, it failed again after the warranty expired.  No more cheap monitors for me.
