Recently, I had a problem with my monitor.  The bottom of the screen has a horizontal blurry stripe going across.  When I restart my machine its fixed, but will eventually happen again.

Any ideas of what I should look for to fix this?

Try switching the video cable or adapter on the cable.   This doesn't sound like a software problem.

If swapping out the cable from the above post doesn't work then its most likely to be a driver related issue. Try installing the lastest update from your machine vendor website. If you have no luck with this then try the below proceedure.

Access "Control Panel" from the Start menu and then select "Appearance and Themes."
Choose "Display" and then go to the Settings tab. Click "Troubleshoot" and follow the prompts to resolve the issue.
If the problem is still not resolved, go back to the "Control Panel" and select "Performance and Maintenance" and then "System."
Go to the Hardware tab and click "Device Manager."
Click "Display Adapters" under the console tree and select your active monitor.
Go to the General tab of the malfunctioning hardware and select the "Driver" tab. Click "Update Driver." Follow the prompts to update the driver to the latest one available.
If the issue is not resolved, try clicking on "Rollback Driver" after selecting the "General" tab.
If this doesn't work access the Windows Catalog and download a compatible driver. Click here for windows driver catalog.     You will need to be running IE6 or higher.

easiest is to test with anothe rmonitor - this will show if the monitor is at fault
and updating the driver can help -  but is unlikely to help here
