You'll need to re-install your graphics card's drivers, Henryk. Sometimes a re-boot of the PC will kick things in again, so try that first.

Reboot your computer and keep hitting the F8 key continuously until you get a menu. Select Menu Item 6 and press enter. You will be presented with a list of 5 dates (american style) pick a date when your computer was last working properly and press enter. Follow the prompts and restart. Should bring you back to where you were.

Right, second try. Reboot your computer and keep hitting the F8 key continuously until you get a menu. Select Menu Item 6 and press enter. You will now get a black screen with C:\Windows> type in scanreg /restore and press enter. You will be presented with a list of 5 dates (american style) pick a date when your computer was last working properly and press enter. Follow the prompts and restart. Should bring you back to where you were.
