Check your hardware and make sure there aren't any blown capacitors on your motherboard and graphics card. If there are, then that's your problem.

If not, try to boot into safe mode and change your resolution settings or update your graphics card driver


Last thing I would check would be viruses.
If able to boot into safemode, uninstall any unwanted programs and toolbars and run an antivirus scan.
