Unhappy Computer crashes in pixels and refuses to start.

Ok so yesterday while I was playing World of Warcraft my computer crashed in pixels and refused to do anything,but to move the mouse only.It happened to me a few times before,but i fixed it by restarting the computer and "plugging" properly my monitor plug to the computer,because my card inside the computer is a little be shaky.However,this didn't work so i leaved the computer for the night to rest.In the morning the problem was there again. I started shooting the monitor to show you what kind of a problem is it,and managed to finally proceed to the desktop!However,my resolution was lower,and i tried to set it to the highest,but i got an error,my desktop disappeared and it turned to the lower resolution.In addition, I saw that my computer is slower o.0 .Here're the pictures that I managed to take.

Does this happen in POST? If it happens just in Windows, that is a video card problem.

When you first turn on your computer, you see your manufacturer's splash screen or something like this:



Is it distorted at this point?

Oh, OK. Couldn't read it :P

Did you try a different monitor, or use that monitor on another system?

What do you mean? The video port? VGA?
