It sounds more like you need to sort your system motherboard or possibly PSU problems before you start trying to solve a specific video problem.

However...it would help to get a better understanding of where things sit (with no significant expense and relatively little time involved)...you need to get Vista and all its drivers, Catalyst, and etc. out of the picture.

Download and run freeware self-booting UBCD and run the system, memory, video, and CPU diagnostics.

Assuming NO problems are found with diagnostics, then...
Download freeware Ubuntu Live and/or freeware Knoppix Live and see if your various problems remain under those OS environments.

Do you have both Analog and DVI plugged in? Try reinstalling the graphic drivers, uninstall, restart, install.
