First try to see if the same problem appears if you boot ubuntu live cd. If yes, try some other RAM modules, sometimes they can go bad and if your graphics card shares memory with your system, problems like yours appear...

It seems that your graphics card is dead. Are there any problems found if you run the memory test from the live cd? (Boot cd and select Memory test after the language selection, and let it run for at least half an hour) – LaLeX Mar 10 '11 at 21:19
