Pixilation on photos and graphics

In the past couple of days, there has been pixilation (red/blue/purple lines and/or red/blue/purple blotches of dots) on photos and graphics on my PC screen. I have done several different things (which haven't helped), including:
*virus scan and RegCure scan
*upgraded latest graphics card driver
*changed the resolution
*went into system settings>advanced>performance>visual effects>disabled everything.

Might you have any suggestions? Many thanks.

Gt5012 graphics pixilate then computer shuts itself off

Sounds like a graphics card problem. If your using a card, try the onboard graphics by removing the card and test the response. You may need a new card or send it back under warranty.
