Why is MBP 15" screen flickering and freezing?

My MBP (15") is freezing and flickering. Not sure why.

It is also timing out and I get the circle rainbow for at least 30mins. Then after that, if I can move the mouse pointer, parts of the screen turn into boxes and start breaking up into the background. I tried to lower the resolution and seemed to work for a few hours, but if I make a quick movement of click too many application boxes it freezes and the mouse pointer erases the open windows.

What is this about?

Do I have to repair the video card or something?

Run your AHT (Apple Hardware Test) the freezing could be your HD or some other component in the machine like your video card.
