For the past few days my computer goes crazy at random times each day. I've searched everywhere for other problems similar to mines with no success. I downloaded malwarebytes, scanned with zero threats found and the same with norton. http://youtu.be/uHIL8wxaCsQ I recorded it as it was happening so you could get a better understanding of what was going on. I thought it was a remote viewer but it happens when the internet is diconnected also.

Does it happen even if no program is open?

I had a similar problem on a monitor a couple of years ago. It eventually died and I bought a used monitor to replace it.

Most likely video driver then.

In safe mode Windows loads its own generic driver which apparently works for you.

 

Go to your computer manufacturer site, download fresh video driver, uninstall your driver and install new one.

Also can you check if you have these files on your PC?

 

C:\ProgramData\wincert\win32cert.dll
C:\Programdata\wincert\win32prop.dll
C:\Programdata\wincert\win64cert.dll
C:\programdata\wincert\win64prop.dll
