Default Monitor is all wierd

Ok, when I put my monitor at low resolutions, there are these wavy lines across my screen. I can only get rid of the with a higher refresh rate and a higher resolution, it seems that it only wants to work with one refresh rate wich is 1280x1024 which is what it is at right now, even now I can still see some of these lines in the lower part of the monitor. I dont know what is going on here but it is making me kinda angry, it's done this since I got the monitor.

.20mm pitch
85hz rr

15'' Macbook Pro
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz
x1600 128MB
Windows XP/Mac OSX 10.5

No longer a Guru of games...

That would be a graphics card related problem. I had the same thing happen to me with my old Nvidia G card. I replaced the card and never had a problem since. What graphics card do you have anyway.

Might seem dumb to mention but...

Do you have any speakers or anything with a high energy output/usage or magnets near the monitor? that'll throw it out of whack.

Something has always seemed a little fishy with your card, GURU. I hope thats not the problem. But yeah, make sure there is nothing magnetic near your monitors.

Actually, that very well could be the problem.
