Maybe you're video card is messed up? Any reason to suspect it would be? Games or anything related doing anything funny?

Edit: Didn't look at the link. I guess just +1 vote for video card suspicion.

Edit: Replace it with another one temporarily to see if it fixes it (if you have a spare)

Edit: If you DO do that, uninstall the display drivers first so Windows doesn't freak out.

Well, I now know for sure it is not the video card or ram causing it. I swapped out them both and still got the problem. My guess is the motherboard. Is there any way to test this?

Process of elimination is the only way I know. Make sure all your other hardware works by trying individual parts in another computer/replacing those parts with ones from another computer.

Edit: You should also remove any unnecessary components (extra HDD's, DVD Drives, etc.) just to be certain you don't end up replacing something expensive because of some weird glitch with a peripheral.
