Sounds like bad hardware. You can try starting Lr from a test account, to rule out something user or catalogue specific.

I would also venture to guess some low level driver, like a video card driver, being out of date.

Determine what video card you have and go directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD) and download the latest driver.
