What type of monitor / graphic card?

have you downloaded the latest drivers?

Does this happen during heavy CPU usage eg games only?

Check to make sure that the VGA connector on the back of the conputer hasn't become loose.

Could also check that the graphics card is firmly plugged into its slot in the mother board.

If it is a crt monitor it could be showing signs of failing, I had a monitor that blacked out sometimes and it gradually got worse.
