Obviously you are experiencing an electromagnetic filed thier. You can try degaussing the monitors but I doubt it will help. It is probable that you will need to insulate the wall better or put up some sort of metal sheeting.

3 possabilities;

The power line for the lights runs through that wall. Mu-metal sheilding is what you will need to eliminate the problem.

The monitors are sharing a circuit with the lamps, and you are near the power handling ability of the line. Try using an extension cord to run a monitor off of a diffeent circuit to test this.

There is one or more bad ballests in the lights.
Have the room quiet, and listen for a louder than usual hum from one light fixture.
You can also check ifany ballest is getting hotter than the others.

If u r using Windows OS, try to reset your monitor freequency. One option is to choose monitor performence to "Optimal". For this do as follows:-
START->SETTINGS->CONTROL PANEL->DISPLAY->SETTINGS->ADVANCED->ADAPTER->REFRESH RATE-> Now here u can select monitor frequency, but my suggection is first select "Optimal" and see the result after re-starting.

Hi,

Please check if your monitor is to much close on speakers...Magnet it the one of the cause just guessing....for a good suggestion please check the fresh rate of the monitor maybe the video card is not compatible. Hope this helps.

well, it's obviously the flouresent lamp is the problem.
Well, try to change the lamp, or maybe it's to short to the user.
or, maybe try to place the monitor elsewhere to avoid electric magnetic field there.
It could be a unknown signal that goto the monitor.
