I have had this issue in the past with an old Samsung 19" where it randomly goes black, but didn't flicker as you describe yours. Surprisingly it was a cable problem, as I first thought it was a defected monitor.
Now I'm no "great" as compared to some members here, including yourself, however I would suggest trying a different DVI cable first. Try to find one from a friend as I'm sure at least one has to have a spare. If not, many a VGA to DVI adapter?
Try reinstalling the driver maybe? Maybe the monitor menu settings is configured wrong?
How long have you had the monitor for? Have you thought it may be an issue with the monitor itself?
Hope you resolve the problem
