Do you have the onboard video turned off since you have a discreet video card? Has there been a power outage and your computer showed a date change, indicating the BIOS settings changed?
Lately (for the past week) I have been having an issue with my PC and I have tried everything to find out what the issue could be. I thought it would be best if I asked some experts on the internet.

My PC boots up perfectly fine, but once it boots up when you start to move around the mouse cursor it sometimes freezes in spot for less than a second, then it unfreezes. Everything else on the computer seems to work fine.
Another problem is when I try to run a game, my computer runs the game fine when its in the menu, but once you start playing 1-3 min into the game maybe less than that the computer freezes up. I gets checkered boxes all across both my monitors. I will provide picture at bottom of page.
One other problem I notice is when i type it could freeze time to time. Just like the mouse, but it happens less.
Please give me some advice on what I could do to solve this issue or if you think a part of my computer is faulty. Note I have had this computer for 8 months and has worked perfectly fine, till now.
