I've never seen a graphics card partially fail.  So I would suggest it's a software problem.
More information would be useful.  What machine, graphics card, driver, etc.
Try booting with an older kernel.  
Have a search round launchpad to see if others have had the same problem.
If using a proprietary driver try the open one or try updating or reinstalling  it.
