Hi, this is likely to be a problem with the graphics card, drivers or overheating.

Get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the PC a good clean out, paying particualr attention to the heatsink on the CPU and the graphics card. Take the card out and clean the contacts with a soft pencil eraser and blow out the slot on the motherboard.

If problems continue try downloading the latest driver for your card and save to the desktop, uninstall the graphics driver from within Device Manager and then install the new driver.

If that doesn't fix it then run Furmark to test the stability of the graphics card.


Download Furmark 1.8.5. version from here
FurMark Setup:
• If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
• In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
• Click "Go" to start the test
• Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90ºC. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
• Click "Quit" to exit
This guide tells you a bit more.

Your NVIDIA graphics driver is pretty outdated. The current version is 285.62.

Here is the download link for the NVIDIA GeForce G210 for Windows 7(64-bit):

The new driver will install over and replace the old driver, so there's no need to uninstall it first.
