monitor problems

perhaps the refresh rate is out of sync? Flat screen displays are limited in their flexibility.It could be that your graphics card is causeing problems. perhaps tyy an onboard graphics event, you will have to physically take out the graphics card to do this. or maybe the processer is being overwhelmed, check the logs.
