Well, if you are ready for a wild-ass guess, you might try setting the 
frame rate to something else, using the boot option "video=" and see if 
that helps.

I'm guessing some device is injecting 60 cycle into your system 
somewhere, and if you can avoid it you can avoid finding the device. I 
don't think it's your monitor going bad, although I've never seen this 
with an LCD display.

You said you moved the computer with respect to the monitor, did you 
just move the monitor around? Doesn't have to be to a spot which is 
convenient, but if moving changes the problem, find out what new device 
is in use nearby. And in use at the times you see the problem. Get a new 
coffee maker lately? ;-)
