Question about IBM ThinkPad A31 Notebook
Sounds like something is eating up your RAM in the computer, possibly a virus or maybe just a bunch of programs running in the background. Run a virus scan at housecall.trendmicro dot com and if nothing is detected you will have to run through your startup programs using msconfig from the start > run menu. On IBM laptops the video card memory is shared with the main computer memory and if it is clogged up you will notice stuff like this, symptoms sometimes can be not being able to see your icons on your desktop as well. It sounds like this computer could use a full reload of windows and starting anew. No matter how well you try to maintain your computer it gets congested over time with unused dll files and registry entries. I would recommend you backup your files after getting a clean virus scan and re-install windows. This should be done every 6-12 months to keep your computer in the best shape possible.
