What graphics card? Do you have the latest drivers for it?

It sounds like your graphics card has given up the game. do you have any lines every couple of cm's on your display?

You should try checking the fan on your card to see if it is working and also that your card is properly seated.

Have you tried reinstalling your graphics drivers or updating them?

you could also check the device manager to see if there are any conflicts with your software/hardware.

uninstall your card then restart your pc windows will redetect and install it and from there it should be fine
