I don't have a better idea than the monitor atm (tho the graphics "card" 
is another candidate).

When it's occurring, try
a) Cycling power to the monitor, including disconnecting from the pc if 
possible, just in case).
b) Exchanging screens with a colleague to see whether that eases the pain.

Note: I don't assert that monitors are hotpluggable tho I've been doing 
it for years without noticing a problem. The instructions for my new 
Acer screen at work are confusing, in one para they say the screen's not 
hotpluggable, the next is says it is.
