Default Monitor Problems

I dont know why but suddenly im having monitor problems. My screen starts messing up when i play games, it shows weird stuff. After a couple of minutes in a game, colorless squares start to show at random spot on my screen. Then more and more squares come, but in differnet colors. Then at one point my screen is filled with squares, and i cant see good cuz it makes everything blurry. This started happening weeks ago, and i had this monitor for awhile now. So is age a problem, or weird virus or something? I really want to fix this.

Probably artifacts. Maybe your graphics card is overheating. Did you overclock it, or maybe it has been quite hot in your room lately.

Well i never overclocked it because i dont know what that this. But the heat maybe a reason. Becuase my room is an attic, in the summertime its like 30 degrees more than outside temperture, and in the winter time is like 30 degrees less.
