I have not seen this issue but for like Tomb Raider Anniversary the screen would freak out for like 5 minutes before loading the game. I found this issue got corrected by a clean install of the latest video drivers. Just saying it may not be JUST the monitor having problems. Check drivers, video settings, cables, game settings VS driver settings and so on. There is a LOT of variables at work between the monitor and your game not too mention i have heard tons of people having problems with BF3 out of the box without tweaking. Let us know what you find out just in case anyone else has this problem later on and try not to make blunt statements that the monitor is the only fail point.
EDIT1: Did a half second search in google and YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE AN IT IS LIKELY NOT THE MONITOR. Here is a free reference to get you started but the rest of the research is in your hands
EDIT2: I could not help myself and i did another half second search in google for you and found it is a Gfx bug in battlefield and is commonly fixed by deleting the APP config settings for BF3 Gfx and re-setting up the graphics settings in game.
Search before you post
