I can't remember if during the install you had a chance to set your monitor, but you need to alter the vertical refresh to around 70 hz or what ever your monitor specs say..Most LCD's can't use the very high V refresh that CRT monitors can..I guess you would have to edit you xorg.conf file under the monitor section but let someone more knowledgable than me guide you as to how to do it..
Hope this helps some..Goodluck
