What disk are you using to try and do the Repair Installation?
Is it a Retail version or a recovery disk?
Full version or upgrade version?
Is this a name brand system and if so what make and model?
Is the disk dirty or scratched?
Did you try the instructions Broni gave in his post with the results you stated?
Have you run any diagnostics on the HD or the memory to make sure you do not have a hardware issue?
Was there any updates or upgrades done to the system prior to the issue starting?
Anything downloaded from the internet just prior to the issue?
Any new software installed?

Try to switch to on-board video and see, if it helps. Maybe your video card is faulty.

When you start your computer, usually at the bottom, you'll see:

Press [some key] to enter setup

By pressing that particular key, you'll enter computer BIOS.
These link may help:
http://www.michaelst...anufacturer.htm
http://www.mydigital...mputer-systems/

In BIOS, you'll have to dig around. (BIOS will look different on different computers, so I can't give you step-by-step instruction.
See, if you can find some setting, where you can disable your real video card and enable on-board video.

i actually open the pc without the video card install in my agp slot..
i see the it in the back of the cpu.. i thought it was no use but when i removed the card and transfer the monitor cord there and the monitor starts and works properly except that i can only play flash games and some popcap games..

i also try to replace my video card with an old card geforce mx 400 and it doesnt give that creepy images. But i cannot use that old card because i cant install a driver in that card.

so is that means the video card needs a replacement.. i only buy that video card(slightly use) more than 2 months ago in the internet..
