First thing to do is try that monitor on another computer to see if it's working properly.

If the Monitor doesn't work change it to another one and if it does this is pointing to a Video Out problem from the computer, or the computer is turning off completely you didn't mention what's happening to the computer.

If the computer is turning off it's most likely the Power Supply at fault as these do die or you could have an overheat issue occurring sometimes the Heat sink can come off the CPU and cause a similar problem the safety circuits in the computer shut it down to save the hardware from destruction. If the monitor is working OK and the computer is turning off you'll have to either take it to an authorised repaired or try having a look inside it yourself to see if there is anything wrong.

Just a note of caution here if the unit is still UG take it back the the Service Agents and if you are unsure of what you are doing take it to someone who knows what they are doing as if handled improperly you can do far more damage than you think.
