Scrolling Monitor Bands... end the insanity

Iím having some PC monitor trouble. The PC boots and runs fine, etc.,
but the display shows a band of lightly garbled pixels slowly running
down the screen from top to bottom.

Each band is about 2.5 inches apart and each is about a half-inch
wide. The just slowly scroll down the page over and over.

I updated the driver. Itís a Dell E772c monitor with an Intel graphics
controller, which Windows XP says is working properly. (graph mode is
1024x768 true color @ 75Hz)

Can anyone give my a hint about how to diagnose the cause of this
problem?

Also, remove any other electrical devices from the vicinity of the
monitor and place the computer and monitor on their own wall outlet
without any surge protector. If this helps then it might be the surge
protector or electrical interference with the monitor.
