    This can often be caused by external devices that have a magnetic field.

    Cellphones, transformers (anything electrical basically) within a few feet of a CRT type screen can do it.
    Some screens are more susceoptible than others, and the refresh rate can affect the amount that the interference can be seen.

    Of course it could be an internal monitor fault, but chack the area for electrical devices first. Including the wall behind the monitor (cables, switchboards etc). The effect is dependent on current flowing in a cable when its coming from the mains.

    kiwiguy is correct...

    I have seem the "Shakies" on a Monitor that was underneath a flourescent light. Had to change the "Refresh Rate" to fix problem. The quicker way would have been to move the puter away from the light but the use did not want to move.
