Some guesses, in the order I would take them:

  1. Bad cable (cheap to replace) or cable connection. Snug everything up. Get urself a nice HDMI or Displayport. If you're still using VGA or even DVI-D my 2c is ditch 'em. Try to avoid using adapters (such as HDMI to DVI-D) if you can, it's one more thing to go wrong. And if you have them, they are suspect.
  2. Video drivers - you can do the recommended clean installation or you can just do Win - X > device manager > display adapters then right click on your gpu card and where it says update driver, update the driver. Sometimes this lazy man's update works. If it doesn't try the clean installation.
  3. Or a new gpu is in your future.
  4. (long shot) the thermal paste is failing between cpu and fan heat sink.
Good luck,
