It's been a long time since I've seen one of those screens. But I recall them usually being hardware related. Poor memory cards, or a bad connection (remove and reseat them as a test). Video cards or a corrupted driver (switch from onboard to external and make sure only one is active as suggested by someone else, uninstall and reinstall the video driver package). Heat caused by dirt or the heat sink coming loose on the cpu chip (verify the ventilation fans all work, all passages are unblocked; shut down for 10 minutes and it should work normally for a bit if this is the issue). I suppose a bad hard drive could be involved, but I think you get different symptoms for that. Like I said, it's been a long time since I've come across this on my systems.
