The problem could be in your graphics card. Have you tried reinstalling or updating your drivers? Or perhaps if you have another video card kicking around you could pop that in and see if the problem persists. If it happened with more than one monitor then I don't think the problem would be in the screen.

so it seems to be the monitor itself?

It appears so, but the thing that makes me not think that is the fact that his original and replacement monitors are doing this.

Might sound silly, but perhaps the problem is in the cable? Try a different cable and see if that helps.
