Default LCD Monitor Problem - Half of my screen is wierd...

I just bought a Dell 1905fp, refurbished from geeks.com. It's really nice, except at random times the right half of the screen gets wierd. A blueish ghost-like line will appear down the middle of my screen, and anything on the right half of the screen gets ghosted in blue. It's hard to describe, but everything on the right side will also look 'out of focus'.

Could using an analog cable be doing this? Should I switch to digital? Or is my screen toast?

So no chance that it's just caused from analog input?
