    Is it the monitor doing something weird? This happened to my neighbor a few weeks ago. It turned out to be a bad monitor. Also, what cord are you using to connect your display to your desktop? (Displayport, VGA, HDMI, etc)
    Is the cord twisted? I doubt it's a twisted cord. Maybe a setting in the game itself or it's just part of the game and you just never noticed it. (Again, I doubt that's the cause too.)

    What's the game you've been playing?

    No, not monitor, checked settings, all normal. HDMI cable, not a problem? The screen is ok at present, it seems to be after boot up, Not the game, have loads of others. It was in the top coloured band of FF, still experimenting, no more answers as yet.
