I have a two-and-a-half year old Lenovo Ideacentre 510-081SH PC running the Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Operating System Version 1903.
Intermittenly - sometimes just a few minutes after I've switched on, or more usually after a few hours use - 'no signal' appears on my monitor's screen and then the screen turns black. The Power Button light on the PC remains on but the Hard Disk Drive Indicator light which normally flashes when the PC is running stops flashing and remains 'off'.
I then press the Power Button for a few seconds to turn the PC off, and then press the Power Button again to turn the PC on again. The PC then works normally until, after an indeterminate period of time, 'no signal' appears on the screen and the screen turns black again - whereupon I repeat the above procedure to turn the PC on again.
I have made sure that the latest Lenovo and Microsoft updates are installed. The monitor, and the VGA cable connecting it to my PC, work fine on my other PC with no such problems. I have also tried the PC 'static discharge' routine but to no avail.
Any help, thoughts and/or comments would be gratefully received.

It has a HDD, not SSD? Ran HDD diagnostics, and a Windows disk surface scan to repair any bad sectors.

Look at the Windows "Event Viewer', particularly at Errors, this can point to the faulty component. Windows focused forums have threads that explain how to navigate the Viewer, and then Google specific errors. For example:
