Ok, thats not surprising that when you plug it in nothing happens, as one must set it all up, prior to hooking up, for it to display.
What you need to do is download the latest Video Drivers for your Video Card, then set up Extended Desktop, and then Plug In the Monitor, to the PC, and reboot, then you need to go to Display Properties, and set the added screen's resolution, and click Enable Extend Desktop, then an only then will you get a display, from then on, it will be detected and work, whenever it is connected.
I include a tutorial link or two below. Vista top & XP below.

Shaky/Unstable Picture

This is power supply issue, one or more of your filter capacitors either bursted and/Or over heats (this is why it becomes better when system cools down after turning it off for 1/2 hour..You have two choices.1. buy a replacement power supply may set you back a couple hundred dollars but it will be plug and play. 2nd you can replace these filter capacitors make sure the can handle 105 deg celsius not the 85 deg. celsius, if you know how to trace the bad ones and desolder and solder new ones on the power supply board, or hire a techinician to replace them for you. Good Luck...

Find and replace the following caps, Ec18, 19, 20 / 1000uf/16v,
Ec9, 10 / 1000uf/35v, Ec14, 25 / 470uf/35v should resolve the problem. You can get the caps at almost any electronics supply.
This is a common problem in this unit.

The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
