Yeah does sound like a GPU problem. Reseat your GPU, make sure its not running WAY to hot..etc etc..

first, reinstall your drivers, if that doesn't work then reseat it, no sense going into your case if it's not needed, you never know what may happen...

Is your monitor right beside a UPS or other hi-powered device? Are you using a power bar? Sounds more like a power problem to me.

well i also talked to a few people about it too... some said it might be the GPU is somewhat fried because weve been having power shortages in my neighborhood... its not next to any hi-powered devices or anything so i dont think its a power problem, im going to try and reinstall the drivers later and hope that works
