please post your hardware so we know what we are looking at. It sounds like your video card is toast. Do you have another computer that you can borrow the video card from?

ok that means the card works...sounds like windows broke. Try to get into safe mode. Post back with results. If you can get into safe mode you can view the event logs and share that information.
