PC crashing, screen pink with lines...

My Dell desktop PC crashed last week while I was playing 'Empire Total War'.

Since then, it keeps crashing and the screen is now all pink with lines all through it, and the icons are all huge. It also crashes each time I try to change the resolution.

I've tried to restore it, but all available restore points are last week, which is no good.

I'm using Windows Vista.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Update graphics drivers?

What does that mean? I'm a real novice!

I just managed to check, and the graphics driver is up to date.

Any other ideas?

Thanks again.
