do you have anything near it? a fan? speakers?

some things give off strong magnetic fields that disrupt the tube inside the monitor. that is, assuming it's a crt? lcd i don't think has that problem.

if nothing is near the monitor that is causing that (moving stuff around will show you), you could find the degauss button... and give it a shot...

otherwise, it might just be at the end of it's rope :(

I've had a few CRT monitors die on me; they seem to last around 7 years of heavy usage, on average.

I use all LCDs now, I don't know if their survivability is any different (none are more than a few years old), but they sure are a lot nicer to pick up and move around :)
