It could have something to do with being near a high magnetic field.  Is the monitor still near the TV?  Or any magnets?  If not, its possible (as it would explain a problem I've seen) that the magnetic field of the TV caused a permanent problem with the monitor...

Do you have the vga palette snoop enabled in the BIOS?
Make sure it is by hitting f1, f2 or del on boot.

Actually it seems to have gone away on its own, i went out for about 3 hours and it seems to have gone away somehow even though i had left the monitor off all last night this little break seems to have done it , at least for now, thanks
