    Yeah, how old is that monitor and have you made sure your at your max or optimal refresh rates and not going over them?

    I just had the same problem

    I noticed very faint wavy line on my IBM P202 monitor tonight. It was set at the max refresh rate listed for 1024x768 32 bit, 120 Hz. When I dropped it down to 100 Hz, they went away.:)

    IBM P202 refresh modes

    Here's a capture of the available refresh rates on my IBM P202 21" monitor at 1024x768 at 32 bit. I was getting a slight wavy line oddity at 120Hz. It's smooth as silk at 100Hz.
