it could be the acctuall power comming out of the wall outlet, if its unstable some times if you have a CRT you're picture will start to shiver or sometimes making weird lines scale around the screen. usualy its not so bad that you cant see anything. if its really readllyyyy making lines or shivering it could be something else, more serious.

How old is that LCD monitor anyways? Could be the video card. Try swapping that out into your PC and test. Is it OC'ed?

Is it the position it is installed? How about checking the power outage?
