Screen is SHAKING!

Ok, I have just installed Ubuntu onto:
Intel Celeron 400Mhz P II
BIOS AMI (American Megatrends Inc.) July '95
128 Mb RAM
JustLink 52x24x52x CD RW
SiS AGP Video Card 8Mb

The system works fine, but the screen is shaking completely, and constantly... I am guessing it is a problem with the video card, or that the video card is failing. If it is failing, how can I disable the video card?

michael@basement:/sbin# lspci
(bunch of stuff, then the video card:)
