Windows 7: Win7 Home Premium x86 (32bit) occassionally blacks out

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit SP1
Win7 Home Premium x86 (32bit) occassionally blacks out

Hello. I am writing from my Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit machine [Intel Core 2 Duo x86 CPU; nVidia GeForce 9800 GT video card], using Safe Mode with networking enabled, since I am lazy to wait for normal boot before writing I was looking for registry keys & did some cleanup while most of services were down to maximize effect of boosting up the computer, that's the reason of Safe Mode.

Anyway - I booted to Safe Mode as I experienced a "blackout" of my desktop. To be correct, the term "blackout" is not lose of power in line, but video card bug or something else similar. It's when the graphics of Windows just stop responding and changes to graphical interface is not visible on monitor. Newly opened or restored windows are just black inside and without visible interface, but invisible buttons still can be clicked and it still do something, just the graphics are somewhat "blacked out" and I can't see what the computer actually does. It happed once or twice few days before, but never before the first occurence. Simple hard reset and normal boot repairs that, but I want to know what can cause that and how to prevent something like that occur again?

I can also boot to a "rescue disc" (simple Linux Live CD with prepared tools for debugging, or I can use original Ubuntu Live CD, which I need to burn first), so it's no problem to actually go around and try out to seek for troubles in another environment...
