Ok, I have isolated the problem. Right after I installed a graphics driver for my PNY Verto nVidia GeForce 9600 GSO video card, it crashed. How do I remove this and even more important how do I get the correct video card driver for it. I thought it was the right driver but i suppose it wasnt.

Nvidia.com should have the driver needed.

The one they suggested is causing the issue, trying a beta driver for my card now.

The newest driver I find is from Nvidia themselves dated May 6th 2009
Version 185.85

You can get it Here

I would suggest you boot into Safe Mode
Uninstall the current driver for your video card.
Then reboot and install the new one. This will make sure there is no conflict between the old installed driver and the new installed driver.

That was the one causing the issues.

I would like to thank everyone that participated in this thread for their help, especially rshaffer61 for his willingness to help me solve my issue. I have moved to the nVidia forums after pinpointing the problem at this thread. Please review it and tell me if there is anything else I should add.

Again, thank you for your help. I would definatly come back to geekstogo if a problem arised.
