Well, a loose video cable anywhere can cause a signal refresh to act up, mostly this happens once and continues until rectified. Case I deal with is a properly set up Dell laptop, the screen overlaps one side to the other and the whole image fluctuates, This cause is not really known, but the remedy is to cycle through the Video Output FN hotkey. That means activating a display via a jack or internally, or both, usually the FN+F8 or F7 key
It may work to check your display output in Display Properties, physical cables should be tight, but there's no need to screw them in, just push them firmly together, at the PC and at the monitor end, if applied on that end, some are, some aren't

Ok. Checked them both. The one connected to the CPU was loose.So, I fitted it tightly.What lifetime can be expected from monitors?

There's no direct answer to that. More so since you didn't say what monitors you have, how long you've had them, and how much you use them each day.
And good monitor should last at least until the warranty runs out and depending on how it's treated it'll live a good deal longer than that.
