You can try updating your video drivers.

Go to start, then right click on My Computer and go to Properties.

Click the Hardware tab.

Click the Device Manager button.

In Device Manager, look for a drop down list titled "Display Adapters".

Expand the list by clicking the little plus sign to the left, and select the video card that comes up.

On the top menu, select Action, then Update Driver.

A wizard will appear. Make sure that you have "Install the software automatically" selected, and click next.

The wizard will search for driver updates, and automatically install them if they are available. Hope this helps.

while the above is sound advice, it depends on having new drivers on your system, or Microsoft having them on windows update, which I find to be more rare than not.

I would take a similar tact, plus one complementary action.

First, if you can, open your PC and clean the dust bunnies from your video card/fan.

Next, download the most current drivers from the manufacturer of your GPU.

Next clean your old drivers by uninstalling from Add/remove control panel applet, then use driver cleaner professional

(follow instructions there)

Then reboot and install the downloaded drivers
