It could possibly be the monitor or the video card but first of all try replugging the video cable (at both ends )

It could be the monitor but you could also consider the lead, graphics drivers and graphics card(s).

You could also try a different monitor as this may confirm the monitor itself.

If the problem is still present or a monitor is not available, I suggest you try a different lead first and see if this clears it. If this fails try uninstalling/reinstalling the driver for your graphics card (you could do this by rolling back the driver click here - for XP audio but similar for Vista/W7 graphics - and then reinstalling). If this fails try removing reseating the graphics card(s) click here.

Sounds odd. Could be a 'dry joint' or similar in the monitor.

I've seen this happen several times - in all instances it was fixed by moving the VGA cable around.
