You may see yellow/s in device manager in which case update driver for monitor or graphics card.

Dodgy graphics card perhaps? Are all fans working on the graphics card (it may be overheating)?

Your graphics card is No 1 suspect to me.

Just as you have tried switching monitors have you or a friend, an old, unused graphics card just to try.

It doesn't need to be properly set up, you can use the generic Windows drivers for that.

OK the screen may look a little unfinished but it will prove where the trouble lies if the monitor stays showing something!

(Do check the cleanliness of the card's own fan of it has one, because a build-up of dust will chop the effect of the fan by a major percentage.)
