Try to bend the monitor cable on different places a little. It`s probably just the cable.

I hope your speakers are not close to the Monitor- a magetic interfearance can cause this- make sure your sub its near it-

Welcome to our Forums wonko the sane, if you insist upon maintaining any sort of inner mental stability you will either be very very lonely or end up ruling the forums!

In any case glad your monitor wasn't the problem":O}
