  1. how old is your monitor?
  2. sounds like possible overheating
    if you can open your case and blow out your CPU fan and heatsink
    plus video card (if you have one) and PSU with canned air
    that could help
  3. Yes, it sounds like an overheating...
    Make sure ALL of your parts are free from dust and re-apply thermal paste should help.
    Also, knowing your FULL specs might help a bit... :)
