What is wrong with my monitor?

I have a sony 17" LCD monitor for 3 years now with no problems.
All of a sudden on occasion I start getting static like lines on my wall paper(Prarie wind), and on other dark colors on other open windows. It goes away, then comes back again. I cant figure out what it is. It all started when I moved to a new apartment.

OS is Win XP.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Is it near a speaker? I had problem when I placed my monitor next to a speaker. Might also want to try lowering the refresh rate.

At one point I had it on top of a box that held my home theater. There were speakers in there. But in its current position it is not near any speakers, not even near the computer speakers.
