Default Wondering what went wrong with my GFX and how to fix it.

When I woke up the colors on my monitor were all messed up with little white dots and that sometimes dance around making it look like the screen is melting and certain colors are smudgy. At first I thought it was the monitor and wonder if it still might be (I don't have another comp to check it on) and then I did a system restore, that didn't work. Then I did little common sense other things like checking cables.

Does anybody know what this is and what to do about it?

Can try reinstalling the drivers, but it sounds like a dead/dieing gpu.
