Question about Monitor

I have a Dell U2412M 24" monitor. In the past week, when I turn the computer on in the morning, on two occasions the monitor has a blank screen. It starts as if it is going to load, but then does not and a black screen in on. Thank goodness, by unplugging the cord from the monitor and letting it sit for a few minutes then plugging back in, the monitor has started working again. Unplugging the cord from the electrical socket did not work; the cord actually hooked up to the monitor had to be unplugged.

This is the first time I have experienced any kind of problem with a monitor in all my many years of owing computers. Do you think it could be that the monitor is going bad? Any suggestions/thoughts will be greatly appreciated. TIA
