Are you running Windows 7? If so there is a known issue with some video cards and using DVI cables. Some have had to revert back to VGA cables to resolve the issue.

Try updating your chipset drivers.

Intel Chipset Software Installation 9.1.1.1015 WHQL download from Guru3D.com

If that doesn't help I'm thinking your hard drive is dying. Install HWMonitor and tell us what your hard drive temps are.

HWMonitor 1.14 download from Guru3D.com
