It might be a long shot but I was having the same/similar problem. I discovered that my washing machine was faulty and I'm guessing causing the surge protection extension for the computer to cut in. it only affected the monitor so I didn't think it could be but since disconnecting the washing machine(which was on the same ring circuit) i haven't had a problem.
