here is a good test to check if the hard drive is good.

http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/downloads/dft32_v416_b00.iso

burn it to a cd and boot to it. run the advance test. if its bad it will tell you.

do this before you try a repair install.

Well, I did what Dre Day showed me (thanks a bunch btw), I ran tests for C and D. In the end they show results but you have like 2 seconds to read a few paragraphs, I couldn't tell shit. So, I'm gonna turn it off now and go to sleep, hope fully when I wake up it's fine, if not I'll try what Pgb and Big B advised.

This shit is buckwild. Had lots of troubles today: woke up, turned it on and the usual: nothing, had to go into safe mode, restart in the safe mode and I was in. But this time

a) after a minute or two the screen blacked out for a second and I got this:



b) After that happened I had to restart in order to changes regarding the graphic card took place and then it really went bend. I could only access the safe mode and even if I restarted nothing happened, only safe mode was the option. After 3,4 try I got this note, here's what I could understand, the rest was some codes and shit: 
Quote
The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming hardware incorrectly.

c) After that I tried 4,5 times again to go into safe mode (which I was able to) and restart but nothing happened. Until that graphic card sign I got earlier made me remember that 2 years back I had a similar problem and the tech guy just opened the computer and shook the graphic card a little bit (put it in her place). So I opened the computer and I basically did nothing just touched a few things like a complete amateur I am and closed it. Now it works again. I don't know if I did anything (I wouldn't put too much hope on it), I think I just got lucky. I'm still afraid to turn off the pc when I go to sleep.

Looks like the thing you tried found some problem and couldn't fix it. So atleast now you know it's a problem with your graphic card, if anything happens just change it.

Could be that the GFX-card was slightly out of the slot, or crippled by heat/dust.. if that's not the case, the error-messages might indicate that the GFX-card is facing death soon.

even though i still think it's a hardware issue, you might want to try to reinstall your graphics card

Meho, do you have an assus computer?
I noticed the ATi thing on the screen shot.

Do you know where I can reinstall that program =X
I accidentally deleted it because I didn't think I needed it and now I fucked up my screen resolution

usually the graphics card comes with an install CD, but based on your reaction, i don't think you know if you have it. :laugh: ;)
that's ok, you can always get the latest software from the internet.

in case you don't know which graphics card you have:

-go to the start menu
-click on control panel




or


-if it looks like the first picture, you need to go to performance & maintenance.

-click on system
-go to the tab 'hardware'

now you should see a list of hardware components
-click on the + sign to the left of display adapters

now you should see the name of your graphics card, you need that when downloading the software here:

32/64 bit?

if you have Windows XP, you can easily find out:



-go to the start menu
-click on control panel




or


-if it looks like the first picture, you need to go to performance & maintenance.

-click on system

you should now see some basic info about your Windows Version.
if you don't see any mention of 64-bit then you have the 32-bit version.

not sure if you have the english version of windows, but the instructions shouldn't be too hard to follow regardless

Thank

So I fill out everything, and it just tells me to go to the support site of asus =/

Fuckit, it's too slow & not connecting to my tv anyway, i'll just go to the store during the week and ask them to fix it.

Thanks again
