Do you have anything near it that might cause interference?  Speakers, radio, wireless devices, magnets?

Try relocating them and see if the problem clears up...
It 'can' cause interference - all depends on how well that equipment is shielded.

Also - do you have a degauss/reset button on the montior?

Is this a CRT monitor?  How old is it?

I have this problem on a not-so-great monitor - the screen shakes using any refresh rate higher than 60Hz...

Just wondering if you tried lowering the refresh rate to 60Hz per my previous comment.

By any chance, do you have fluorescent lights in the room?  They interact very badly with 60Hz refresh rates and cause flicker.

the fluorescent lights is about 1.5m away from my monitor, do you think it is too near?

Try an experiment: turn it off and look at your screen - I'll bet that is the cause of your "shaking" phenomenon.  If you have to have fluorescent lights, choose a refresh rate of 72 or 85Hz to avoid flicker.

I like the way you think Callendor.

The refresh rate (measured in vertical Hertz) may be set too low.
    Solution: Try setting this refresh rate to at least 72 Hz. (Do this through the video card setup, not on the PC monitor.)

Flicker or shaking may be caused by another electronic or motorised device, either placed too close to the PC monitor or plugged into the same electric circuit (on the same circuit breaker).
Solution: Try moving the offending device further away from the PC monitor, or try turning off all appliances or devices on the same circuit breaker
