So, I logged onto my Computer like normal, and at first this problem was minimal. But after I got it to disappear by restarting my computer, it came back within minutes and it's been here since.
I'll provide a screenshot: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2ptym3q&s=5

What I've tried so far:
Cleaning the dust off of my Video Card and it's fan.
Restarting my computer.
Banging head on desk and hoping it will go away.

Gentlemen, I require your help!

Are the plugs in sercurly in the back of the computer graphics card and the screen. Sometimes this sort of thing happenes if one of the small pins isn't conected properly due to the computer/screen being moved.

Try it in Safemode with Networking by tapping F8 on startup and see if it is the same.

It's a PC right?

Does your onboard video work if you take the graphics card out?
Try a new monitor cable?

More expensive option is to put in a new card :x

Mm, it persists even in Safe mode.

Also, the problem can be taken away, at least for my computer backround and browser, if I put it into 16-bit instead of 32-bit.
But my graphics for games and the like are completely gone to trash.

I'm not really sure what I can do, now.


Edit: I suppose I could get a new one. Then again, I'm not sure what to get.
I'm a complete computer newbie.
