Sounds like GPU problems.

For the next week use the canned air on the vents daily.
For the next month use it weekly then go back to your regular 1st of the month routine and how it clears up.

If not, have a tech replace heatsink compounds inside the laptop.

i have cleared all

i did a thorough dust clean of the laptop and nothing changed, could things change if i replace the thermal paste on the gpu?

Maybe.

It's a classic failure but as a test we reload the factory issued OS (restore media or onboard restore) then re-test. It's a classic GPU failure sign.

-> But there is something that if you didn't tell me it could be. Is the RAM stock? In some systems you must get the right RAM since these are used for video GPU memory. Test? Install the sticks the machine came with.

RAM is stock

RAM and everything is stock i didnt changed nothing.
I also did a reinstall of os and all programs( started from 0) and installed the stock programs from the DVD that i got when i brought the notebook, i did tested the gpu in diffrent programs to see if the problem is caused by gpu overheating but there was no difference in beahvior.

I had to disable the nvidia graphic carda from Device manager in control panel and leave only the integrated one because i cpuldn't get any work done (as you see in the images i posted)
