Have you checked does Event Viewer show anything strange?

From symptoms cause might be in graphics card or its drivers.

Try downgrading your drivers to an earler version.. and also maybe try reseating the card this does normal help though I think its more of a driver issue or card issue been faulty or not liking the drivers

These simptoms are the normal ones when i test cards..
