Windows 7: Display randomly glitches, then freezes

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Display randomly glitches, then freezes

This is the second time in a month I have encountered this glitch. I have had my laptop for 3 years and have just started getting it. I have an Asus G50VT-X1. It seems at a random time the screen just bugs out and the colors change and shift. There are also little block artifacts everywhere. I can move my mouse for a bit, but then it completely freezes.

I know it's not a hard drive or OS thing because although the first time it happened I was on my HDD, this time it happened on my brand new SSD that I just installed with a clean install of Windows 7. I've asked my friends about it and they said they have never heard of it happening before. I have the latest drivers from nvidia, so that can't be it.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Here is a picture of my problem.

Sounds like overheating is affecting the video chip on the mother board. Install a program like SpeedFanto monitor temps, see what it tells you.
