Monitor blinks off

I have a Gateway, Windows XP. They replaced my monitor a month ago, because my monitor would not 'stay' on. It blinks on for a second then blinks off.
This new one is ok, as long as I don't have to restart for any reason. Then the blink on/off situation happens again. It must be off for several hours or overnight in order to stay on. So, I keep it on all day, have set it so it doesn't go to sleep for at least 3 hours at a time.

So, I'm now thinking it's not the monitor but might be the motherboard (I'm told my graphics card is there). I'm ok with following directions, but am certainly not terribly computer savvy. I've run all the diagnostics this computer has, but nothing has come up that seems to be wrong.

Here is the report from HiJackThis:
