Those symptoms suggest to me a possible problem with the graphics (display) card or its driver.

You could try Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. If the problem does not occur in that mode then the cause is likely software--maybe a driver. You could then try a System Restore to just before the problem began. If the problem does occur in Safe Mode then I suspect a hardware defect.
