    Yeah I developed a similar problem when I switched from a six foot heavy
    duty cable to a 10 foot not so heavy duty cable on one of my monitors...
    a piece of ferrite helped a little, but didn't remedy...

    Coworker had a similar (but more color related) problem when one of the
    pins on her cable was half snapped off.

    So, I'd check the cables first, then try the monitor on a second
    computer, then buy a new monitor if need be.

    Your screenshot is immaculate. Your monitor is dying. But check the
    cables first.
