Eithers its a loose connection with the power cable (check both ends) or the VGA/DVI cable (the one which goes from the computer to the monitor), make sure you check both ends.

Or the monitor could be faulty.

Sounds a similar problem to mine, Probably a dodgy lead, I have mine taped up at a certain angle and it works spot on!!

Yer pain isnt it?are the cables cheap to buy new ones in case? Its a flat screen monitor?

Is it a VGA or DVI cable you need?, Both are cheap to buy.

Mine is actually connected inside the monitor so I can't change the cable, But on most it unscrews and a new one can be put on.
