Hello, have you played around with your hardware lately, like removing or replacing anything?
The best thing to do first, is to try with a different monitor and if you can, a different graphics card.
If you are able to do this and it still hasn't solved the problem, then check your memory sticks and try taking them out one at at time to see if there is any difference.
Also try replacing them with some sticks that you know work.
