The early 2008 MBPs had serious videocard problems which you may be experiencing. You will need to go to an Apple Store or service provider to have the MBP tested which may cost you. The problem is that the 4 year extended video card warranty has long expired for all these models so getting a free repair is not likely.
Some discussions to peruse.

Hi. I have heard of the problem you and dalstott are talking about. I subscribe to a number of Mac podcasts on iTunes. These podcasts have discussed this issue. If you go to your apple store and try to have the problem taken care of and find that the person you are talking to won't/can't help because of the expired warranty, ask to speak to the manager. Always be respectful and tell the truth. If there is no help from the manager contact apple customer relations. If needed contact, by email, the CEO of apple. Always be respectful and pleasant when communicating with apple. The reason why I am telling you this is because on the podcasts I subscribe to there have been recent reports of people having the video card replaced or a new machine given, even though the warranty on the video card has expired. Good Luck.
