Display blacks out

When clicking to select an item, or occasionally in the middle of typing, the display blacks out for about a second or two. Occasionally the blackout is permanent, so I need to power off and restart. On those occasions the monitor "on" light remains illuminated and the PC disc activity light continues to flicker as though still working. Any suggestions?

First port of call: check that all your connections are tight at both monitor and PC.

If that yields no joy, you may have to check that your graphics card is secure in it's slot.... this would mean opening the case (not a good idea if you are under a warranty, as doing so will invalidate it)
