Its either the video card drivers are old or either too new or that you overclocked the video card. It looks like bad drivers for your specific card to me.

Whatever your current video card drivers are try something newer unless you already tried the very newest then I would goto the drivers released right before the current newest.

What kind of video card? You should be able to find the current driver at the manufacturer's web page. Once you have the current driver downloaded and availabe to install, use Driver Cleaner to clean up the current mess. Then install the current driver. Here is what you need to do. Go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner. It is free. Then boot into safe mode (F8 on boot up) and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver.
