The problem is very hard to explain so i took a screenshot of it. It happens at random, returns to normal after i restart explorer. Sometimes it freezes the pc and i have to reset it. :( 

I think its because of the graphics card being damaged or faulty (it's a old one).

Graphics card : Nvidia geforce 9500 GT

only wanna know the reason behid it for future use. I am buying new graphics card in few days. :) 

Most important is thatgraphics card doesn't get heated even when this happens.

ALL other components of computer are brand new few months old.(didnt have money then so using friend's old graphics card)

Looks like the ram on the card is faulty, or possibly a driver issue. Have you tried an older driver for that card?

I read online that switching to older versions will stop it. Tried almost 10 different versions but it still happens.

Can you try the card in another PC? If that pc has the same issues, then the card is faulty.

if the card had similar problems in another computer, then the card is faulty. The Asus is a good card from a good company. I have no personal experience with that particular card.
