Knowing the type of monitor would help. Is it a CRT or an LCD monitor?

There are a few possibilities, but it might indicate a hardware malfunction. It could be the video card (easy to test by trying a different video card) or the monitor itself. Have you tried different refresh rates (70 Hz or faster is best)?

Unless it's a high-end unit, used CRT monitors can be had for next to nothing.

Most people don't seem to notice screen flickering at 60 Hz, but some of us do at refresh rates below 72 Hz. Glad to know that increasing the refresh rate resolved the issue.
