Default Strange patterns on screen

Since yesterday I'm having strange patterns all over my screen. (see attached screenshot) The block patterns seem to be parts of the screen copied from elsewhere on the screen.
These patterns appear in Linux, LILO's bootmenu, while booting Windows and in Windows itself. When I run DirectX diagnostics, DirectDraw tests are ok. With Direct3D the tests for '7' are ok (still, I see the strange patterns) but for '8' and '9' it just shows a blank screen. (see attached DirectX report)

I have a GeForce FX5900 w/ 256MB @AGP

Any idea what could be the problem?

(PS I accidentally posted this question in the wrong forum but I put a link to this thread in there.)
