    Do you have anything that might generate a magnetic field close to the monitor. CHeap unshielded PC speakers for instance. A desk top fan plugged into the same outlet has done this to me.or a space heater witha fan will do the same. Relocating the offending item either away from your monitor, or inthe case of fans to a different outlet should take care of it. By different outlet I mean a different circuit.

    what is the native refresh rate of your monitor? It may have been reset wrong by an application without you knowing it. That may help a bit.

    I agree with bob...do you have antispyware / antivirus? Run them both. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the video drivers?
