That sounds more like a graphics card problem than a moniter problem.  You might want to try a different moniter and see if it still has the same problems and if it does go and buy a new graphics card for your computer.

I get this question all the time from other people I help out.

 

What is happening here is that your computer is going into a refresh rate that the monitor cannot handle. 

 

May I ask if you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista?

What kind of computer do you have , could you share some more details about that? If you are getting a picture just fine on the desktop, its not that.
