Did you try to boot in safe mode?
(F8 when booting, select safe mode)

rightclick My computer, select properties.
Click on the "hardware" tab and click on the "Device manager" button.
There you will see list of drivers and some may not be loaded. Those problematic will have yellow triangle with an exclamation in it. My guess is the display driver. Rightclick that problem driver and select "disable" or "uninstall". Reboot the system (normally) and reinstall the driver in question (video drivers are usually not included with windows driver pack).

it doesnt let me restart in safe mode, maybe there is a missing chip? because my parents always take my computer and might have removed a chip
