Default Random Pixels on my screen!

Well first, I was playing games on my computer all of a sudden the graphics went to 2d graphics. I alt tabbed and it worked, but it kept popping up again and again. So the last time I did it, it crashed. As soon as I turn the computer back on, small pixels came out of no where. There was no problem there. But when I tried to play any game, the pixels started making columns of themselves, not making me able to see to play and so, it crashed.

Everytime I turned off the computer, more and more pixels started popping up crashing more often! I can't even see at safe mode let alone the loading screen. Please help me! I've tried system recovery, i scanned for viruses. It's also gotten to point where I can't even see my desktop! I don't know if I posted in the right section but please help me here!
