since I am running an 8200 w/ ultraharp right now, my guess would be
either non-optimal resolution (physical pixel grid is 1600x1200) or
maybe you actually have a problem, or maybe you have eyes that just
happen to see a frequency harmonic the display uses.  I make it a
practice on digital LCDs to always run at physical resolution.  In fact,
1600x1200 is the reason I bought this laptop.
