have you tired another monitor?
also can you please list computer specs?
your specs only show your operating system.

What type of cable are you using to connect to GPU? If you're using the vga/hdmi or vga/dvi that may very well be your problem. I recommend a DVI cable or HDMI if you want sound. The only outputs on that monitor are DVI and VGA...go DVI.

The main suspects would be the monitor or video card. First thing I would do is check your video cable to make sure its connected correctly. If that was a CRT monitor I would put it at the top of the list. If you don't have another monitor do you have another PC or laptop to test your monitor on? If your motherboard has onboard video you could switch to that temporarily as a test to rule out a faulty video card.

I looked up the monitor and it's a newer flat panel so i would check your connections on both the monitor end and the computer end of the cable. also the reset suggestion above is a good idea also.

well, it's just so random. Once a month or so. I might go with the HP 2311x.

I had that happen with an older CRT,
after opening it I found a connection had shorted out.
I ofcourse just bypassed the connection and resoldered, probably shouldnt have worked.. but i got 3 more years out of that monitor before i parted with it.
"I do not reccomend that on LCD's, or even CRTs".. was just something i tired before tossing it.
