    It is your screen doing that. It is not a problem with Linux or the computer.

    You should try a new HDMI cable for the screen.

    I would start by hooking the PC to another monitor or even a TV set and see if you get the same problem. If so, then I would make a bootable disk or thumb drive and boot and run from that and see what happens.

    Hmm - you probably pressed and poked the HDMI cable, or shifted the screen and now all signals are making proper contact again.
