Your graphics card is giving up the ghost. The same thing happened on my PC and I got a refund.

LOL. It was an nVidia that died for me though.

Mine started to look like that after a minute. After 2 minutes the whole screen was a mass of cyan and magenta blocks and eventually it would crash the computer.
