I would start with testing your RAM. Do you have access to a spare video card you can install to see if that is the problem? Video card have memory, which can fail. If not try a basic card at a used computer shop. They are usually about $10.

You also may want to update your motherboard/chipset drivers (since updating the video drivers didn't fix it).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

If your present card is intergated, the BIOS will disable is when it detects the after market card. If it does not you can manually disable the present card from within the BIOS. If the current card is a add on simple remove it when you install the test card.
