I have a GeForce Video card that I use to run Dual Monitors. I've been using it for a few years now, and have had no problems. Actually, I recently opened up the computer to clean the dust out, and was experiencing problems with it freezing up. I opened it back up, blew it out again and made sure I didn't knock anything loose. It's been working with no problems since then(about 1 month ago). However, i'm now having problems. I'll be working with no problems, then I notice the screens start to get a tint of green. Also, looks as though some lines get a little wavvy. Usually, everything freezes up soon after. I'll reboot it, and it starts up fine, but usually the same thing happens. The last time I had some green box like images appear on the screen. I was hoping I might get some ideas of what's going on, and how I might be able to correct the problem. The PC itself runs XP and is a good 5 years old.

Thanks in advance.

Your Graphic Card has gotten Loose in its slot. Fix it soon or there will be a sever damage to either you Card or the System Board.

As suggested above, make sure your GFX card is firmly in place and that its temperature is within the limits.
If you are having a problem with the GPU temperature, you could get a better cooler fan for it.

Also check the quality of power supply, insufficient or poor quality supply can also cause problems with your GFX card.

Finally, let's not rule out the possibility of the GFX card showing signs of failing.

Hope this helps.
