The monitor just switches off.


Whilst on internet or simply on MS Word for example, the monitor just switches off. The tower remains on. I have to press reset button on tower to get back to my desktop and continue / start again what I was doing. I have checked all connections to the monitor. All are fine. It switches off after various amounts of time, sometimes every 5 minutes, sometimes not for ~2 hours and sometimes not at all.

It's as if the power is being pulled from it. I am unsure what to check / look at.
