Screen or videocard?

Hi, I have a samsung SyncMaster T200 screen which is just over a year old and it has started to go on and off sometimes for seconds sometime for longer, then it appears to be ok for a while then it all starts again sometimes telling me there is no connection. I have changed the cables (DVI, Power) to no avail I don't have access to another computer to see if it works there.Does this sound like a screen or video card problem and how can I check? Many thanks Peterkins

If it's a sperate graphics card, try removing it from it's slot, and refitting.

Otherwise, without testing, it's almost impossible to say with much degree of certainty.

If I was pushed, I think the monitor is marginally more likely - but if I had to troubleshoot such a symptom, my first act would be to try the monitor elsewhere.
