You can reseat your video cable to the monitor but it looks like either your video card or the monitor is going bad. Borrow a monitor from someone and see if your monitor is the problem. If you have onboard graphics you may need to switch to a card type graphics card.

One other thing you can try is deleting the video drivers, rebooting and reinstalling the drivers. It's a long shot as usually flashing video is hardware going bad.
