Oh, sorry bout' that, in fact, I already did it, as you can see on the previous caps, it's the regular windows 7 theme, I changed back from the original windows, but it's just the same.

For giggles shut off your PC for about 10 minutes.

Just to be sure, I cleaned everything inside the case, the mobo, checked if there where any blown capacitors (very unlikely because I bought it 6 or 7 months ago to replace the original that came with this OptiPlex), restarted the CMOS and the defaults on mobo, I got the video card off and used an option on the BIOS called Primary Video which says: "This field determines which video controller will become the primary video controller when 2 controllers are available in the System. This selection matters only if there are 2 video controllers present". There are 2 options, Auto (the one I have been using), and Onboard (says:"Use the integrated video controller"). But I haven't had any luck, maybe I'll have to reinstall Win 7 and format?

Repair Install

You can try the above, if you follow the instructions you will not lose any programs.

Thanks Gary, I will try this and if something is out of place, I will do the full-reinstall for now.

Hey, thanks again for the help. I did a full-clean reinstall of Windows 7, but even that didn't help. I reinstalled the video card drivers but it's just the same. So I assume this is from hardware?

Might as well be, have you tried to use another graphics card or the integrated graphics in the motherboard?

Yeah, didn't had any luck, the video card was one of the first things I checked out, I still can't understand what's wrong here :S

Just as a longshot.. what about your monitor? Have you tried using another one? Or resetting yours to fabric settings?

I did my friend, one of the first things I tried. In fact, I'm using this same monitor with that PC and with the one I'm using right now. Perhaps I should upload pics of the mobo?, maybe there's something around I didn't saw, I'm not very skilled at electronics.

- I used another monitor, it's exactly the same. I even linked the two monitors on dual display but both displays are equally messed up
- I reinstalled the video drivers, I even used Driver Genius just to be sure they are the right ones

As you can see, my monitors, video card and cables are just fine. The BIOS and the Windows start screens colors and graphics are fine.
