Specs: windows xp
after switching on the system works fine for some time say 1-hr then suddenly there are colums moving up and down on the monitor and everything hangs.
after restart also it happens the same.

Could be overheating inside the PC which has bad effect on graphics card. Could need a good clean to remove dirt and fluff build-up inside the casing and on the grills/air-intakes where the fans suck air in. Do it carefully but thoroughly. I use a vacuum cleaner with plastic crevice-nozzle attached to end of hose. Don't use metal attachment as it may damage delicate components.

And if system has seriously overheated... then "possibly" the graphics card is now becoming "toast"... and may need to be replaced anon...
