you probally have a program in your startup that is causing it.

press ctrl alt delete

and look at the running processes how many do you have

also, post a hjt log so we can see whats running on your pc

did u try lowering your settings to 16-bit? if you right click your desktop select properties click the settings tab, look under color quality and change to 16-bit. reboot

your colors wont be as pretty that way tho.
If it is a specific program you may be able to run it in compatability mode. Have you recently installed any older programs on your computer?
