Start up repair will not fix this issue which is definitely related to your graphics card. First download the latest drivers but uninstall all existing graphics software and drivers before you install.

As Chronus says it sounds like the graphics card is failing, either that or maybe its not getting enough power. Personally I would open up the case and remove the card and give its fan a good clean, may as well clean others while your at it.

It is very easy to find as your monitor is plugged into it. So if unsure unplug the power cable and remove the side panel of your PC and then find the cable that goes from your monitor to the back of your PC that will be where you will find the graphics card. Remove that cable.The graphics card will be held in place by a screw remove the screw. Some slots in which the cards sit have small catches to lock the card in place, you will find this at the back of the slot furthest from the back of the pc. Just gently pull the catch towards the side while pulling the card up and it should pop out very easily.

You do not say what you will be replacing the graphics card with, so it might be necessary to remove the drivers which you will find in add and remove under Nvidia drivers.

Gigabyte is just the maker of your particular card but it is still a Nvidia graphics card.Although Windows 7 will install drivers for graphics etc, it is always best to get the most up to date drivers from,in your case, Nvidia.

Always use Nvidia for your graphic card updates and should you change to an AMD GPU whose cards are also made by others than you would use the main AMD site for driver updates. I for instance have a HD 6870 made by Sapphire and go to the main AMD site for driver updates and not Sapphire's.

On the subject of dust you should not be surprised that fans can and do get clogged with dust so every now and then take a soft brush and give them a a bit of a clean,you are less likely to have over heating problems that way.

Sorry meant to say, I do not use spray can air, a soft paint brush and a Hoover does the job fine.
