Try rolling back the driver for your graphic card. I had a similar problem when I updated my display driver for my laptop through microsoft. Start your pc in safe mode and rollback your driver and if that dosent work, then try an earlier restore point while in safe mode. no harm in trying, thats what its there for.

Have you tried totally uninstalling all the graphics software and drivers from add/remove programs and then uninstall drivers in device manager. Reboot PC and let XP pick up the card anew.

I would also check the card has not come loose in slot and give the insides a general spring clean.

Failing that change to new graphics card.

It could also be as a result of the hard drive developing a problem.

Points to a faulty graphics card. Depending on what you are running buy a compatible new card - uninstall the old then replace it, letting Windows do a default set up. Your new card should come with a drivers cd which you can then install.
