im running an intel 2.8Ghz processor, the board is intel D865gbf. when i start my computer, everything is normal but usually (and more oftenly now) the display suddenly turns something weird, a combination of lines and blocks and everything is stalled. this can happen before or after the loading of windows (no fixed time). and when i restart the pc, normality is restored for sometime but then again this problem can erupt any time. to give an idea of the sort of display problem ive taken a snapshot of the monitor screen, which can be found here:

i am not sure where the problem lies! but its really annoying

Does this also appear in "Safe Mode" or "Start XP with VGA"?

Checking hardware is just switching components. If you try 2 monitors and only one works - then it's likely that the monitor is the problem. If neither work, then it's likely that the video card is the problem.

The same thing with the video card - if another doesn't work, then the problem is likely to be deeper inside of your system (BTW - don't forget to disable the onboard video when trying another card)>

To clean the fan and heatsink, get a can of compressed air and blow the dust and lint out.
