That kind of sounds like your monitor is going bad. Do you happen to have one of the old 'clunker' CRT screens from the particular P4 era you seem to be describing?
At any rate, you should make sure your RAM is maxxed (i would think 2Gb). Past that, can you give more complete specs? Integrated graphics, especially from that era, are quite bad to game with. I have a system with integrated graphics that can't even run Windows XP smoothly let alone run any games.

A P4 with 1.5GB RAM & 128MB "in-built" graphics is not a good machine for gaming. Even though most of the games you listed are fairly old, you should consider upgrading to an actual gaming graphics card. More RAM wouldn't hurt either.
