It has now come to black lines going up and down the screen, and small "black outs" where the monitor stops recieving a signal for a split second

reload drivers, if that doesnt help your gpu is probably bad, considering that thing is way old and uses alot of juice.

test your hardware

furmark
prime
memtest

windows 8 enterprise -- you sure the crack didn't mess with the core windows files?

pentium G620 as a gaming cpu?
