Default Blinking Video

If the video on my screen is blinking like crazy when it is just in the desktop ( every 1-3 seconds) does anyone have any idea as to why this would be doing this...the video card is an fx 5200. Also whenever WoW is trying to be run the screen shows crazy triangular shapes... i am thinking that this is a driver problem...hopefully, please help!

That game is known for it's issues with video cards...change your driver version. If the current release doesn't work well for you, just use an older version.
