So lately I've been having this issue. After I play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for an hour or so the game crashes, along with Skype, and these colored pixels start showing up on my screen. the only fix is to reboot the PC. This happens mostly with videos, but has also happened in programs such as AMD Overdrive. Some hyperlinks and text on forums are also not visible when this happens. 



How text gets displayed: 





OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: Asrock 970 Pro 3
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4Ghz + Arctic Freezer 13 CO cooler 
RAM: Crucial Sport XT DDR3-1600MHz 4GB 
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6850
PSU: Corsair CX-500W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm + Seagate Barracude 2GB 7200rpm 

before you ask, I've got the latest drivers and no viruses. No OC. Temps are good. GPU never goes higher than 73º C and CPU shouldn't be the issue with a cooler? 

I've been having problems with crashes, BSOD's and restarts ever since I bought this rig 3 years ago. Because it usually comes and goes, I figured they would be software related (virus and whatnot) specially after the multiple formats I've done, but this only started happening very recently after my latest one. Perhaps GPU related or drivers? I'm going to replace this GPU soon anyway but the quickest I get to isolate the issue, the better. 

EDIT: Just happened again. Skype displayed this message right before it crashed:
