Unless this happens only when you are using a particular program (Eg.a game), that usually means that the video adapter is faulty, and must be replaced.

Before replacing the video card try unplugging the card and plugging it back in the slot (unless you are talking about an onboard).

Try also reinstalling drivers with last update, and if you know how to do it , boot from an external disk, or reinstall Windows to test the system.

The problem will probably re-occurr, in that case replace the card.
