noticed entire display was vibrating

I've been leaving PC on overnight periodically, uploading my iTunes collection to the new Google Music beta online storage.

I come in this morning- the program had finally finished- over 6400 songs- and I noticed that the screen was vibrating. It does about 500 a night or so.

the 'Google' logo on the web page. Even the icons in the systray. Back and forth. very subtlety.

A reboot, and it's gone.

Was it fast? slow?

Did you maybe turn the monitor off while the computer was on all night?

Outside of that I would just make sure cables and plugs are all fully secure.
Vibration isn't a common sign of a graphics card problem, generally they begin displaying brightly colored dots we call artifacts when they start going bad.
fseal's explanation also makes sense, though that would be strange as well.
