Hello all. Things have been running rather smoothly for my computer until my computer got a BSOD while I was in the middle of a game(TF2). SO, I just restarted it without really taking good note of what the problem was, but to what I can recall I believe it was my Nvidia display driver which was caught in an infinite loop??? So I reboot the computer to see fuzzy lines and I find out that my computer will shut to a blank screen before windows fully loads up.

Here are the pics of what happens when I turn my computer on

this leads into this

and then I press F8 to go to this

With a little trial and error I was able to find the different safe modes, including VGA safe mode which is what I am using on my broken computer at this moment.After I pick safe mode I get one more distorted screen

then everything works normally only in safe mode after that.

I have tried switching to multiple different video card drivers and nothing changes. I am guessing it is a motherboard problem or a video card problem, but I am not an expert. HALP!
