I am having a problem with graphics.

The borders of any current window that is open turns black. May it be a web browser, application, or explorer. The background of the taskbar menu is black as well. When i click on the menu bar or any application (web browser, software app) it flickers. When I open the task manager the whole window flickers. When I right-click on something the menu flickers too.

I have no idea whats wrong. Help would be greatly appreciated. If you need additional information please feel free to ask.
