Wavy or distorted issues only arise if electronics or anything that has magnets in it is near it or on the CRT ( the really huge monitors) so try moving it elsewhere ( In this case you can hire someone with the "magic wand " to zapp the colours back)(general tv repairer.If its an LCD (flat and small screen) it may be dying as the transistors are wearing out ( They usually last for 4 yrs) The only thing you can do is replace the circuit board or the panel . If you have another pc or laptop try to connect it to the monitor and if the pictures are perfect ,its your graphics card .

\015\012The best solution to this is to move the screen to another place without electronics or to connect it to a laptop or pc to see if its ok. If the symptoms persist i recommend you to buy another perferably dell screens 19" Lcd as they are cheap and provide good quality.
