I have to reset PC as it seems frozen like this. I reinstalled Windows 7 thinking this would solve it. I will get a antivirus software in near future but if this can be fixed without that this would be great.

When the monitor is in this state the keyboard seems unresponsive to.

This just started happening late last night, i don't get it. Could it be the wire in the back of my monitor? Though the monitor seems fine anytime other than when the problem occurs. I feel it only happens when im browsing the net to. Particularly on youtube site this problem kicks in.

Hope this can be a problem easily fixed :( .

Thank you for taking the time to read. If you can help at all please leave a post.

edit - Everytime i go on youtube without fail it happens. I'm using Firefox to.

You shouldn't be connected to the internet without antivirus software, not even for a few minutes. Install a decent AV and give your system a complete scan for malware. I'm not aware of any malware which causes the symptoms you describe, but it's a distinct possibility since you've left your system unprotected, something I would never do.
