Default flat panel blacks out randomly

my friends gateway flat panel monitor will suddenly flicker on and off while there using the computer, just chatting or what not. they've checked all the cables and everything is tight. The gateway computer is only a yr old but out of warrenty. Ive tried changing the refresh rates down and turning the monitor power save off but that didnt fix the problem. Anymore ideas?

i guess the flat panel is just too cheap...you gotta watch out for that. ONE SOLUTION - try 800*600 at 60 Hz refresh rate. What is the size of the monitor? 14, 15, 17 inch?
