Did you disable any floppy drive it shows?
Also check and make sure Floppy Drive Seek is disabled.
I will not declare this resolved till we have everything originally posted corrected

And "Floppy Drive Seek" i'm not following you there haha.
[EDIT] Ok I crashed once again, right now I am running in safe mode (with networking).
It was working fine, I loaded up Call Of Duty 4 and it went pixely.
I tried to start my computer up normal and it wouldn't work.
So basically it is the same problem as before.

I have to ask where did the games come from?
Did you download them from the internet?
The floppy drive seek is a setting in bios that tells the system to look for a floppy drive regardless of the fact you disabled any floppy drive from being installed.
With this enabled it will return the error message you are getting.
Go back into bios and look through everything for it. When you find it just disable it and save the settings before you exit.

And ok I will look, but with my crashes still going on this is the least of my worries at the moment.
And I am getting off for the night, I'm so tired and got work again tomorrow.
but is this maybe the end of my graphics card??

The card should really be able to handle it with no problems.
It may have some corrupted memory on it and that may be causing the issue.
Under normal load it runs great but when something graphic intensive is started it messes up.
OK I think I'm going to get some sleep and dream about this..

Ok, so in my Bios, I remember I was changing a lot of stuff around hoping that the floppy error would go away. Should I try loading default settings??
Also, when I installed my mouse it came with a setpoint software. When I did a system restore to try and get rid of the floppy error, the setpoint made 2 folders of the same stuff, but yet I never officially uninstalled it. There is an uninstall program but it doesn't load.
Could I have my settings too high on my game? I have run on the highest setting for the longest time.
But just trying to give you some more info that we can work with.

Try lowering game settings
If the two folders are exactly the same with files and size of contents then I would think you could safely remove one of them. Hopefully you have the software installation disk just in case for the Set Point
Let me know the results.

And they were different sizes for some reason but I am planning on uninstalling it anyway.
