What are your resolutions set at? You can find this by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties and then the settings tab? You could try reducing to a lower resolution. It would seem though that your monitor is dying since turning it off for a short period fixes the problem temporarily. If you mean turning off the computer then it could be a video card problem and it may be overheating.

I would start by reinstalling the video card driver
You could also try another monitor, if possible

As already said, if cycling just the monitor alone temporarily cures the problem, then that pretty much confirms the cause is confined to the monitor itself. If it's a CRT (picture tube type) monitor, then it sounds like a fault called "blooming", where the picture size expands due to operating voltages drifting off value. Something in the monitor is on the way out, and a CRT is probably not worth fixing.
If it only drifts that small amount and stops, a work-around might be to reduce the scan width in the monitor's setup menu, if it has that option. But it may just keep getting worse.
