Maybe the first place to check is the device manager, for updated drives.

The second might be the event viewer, to see if any problems are reported.

Third might be perfomance monitor in the control panel under adminstrative tools.

Can it actually be the monitor?

Well most likely it is software, the source of most of the problems, reported here. Check out the areas that I outlined, then we can see where we should go next.
