I think you will find that your graphics card is failing.

Have a look at this. But also consider your graphics driver especially if you updated recently. You should also look in Device Manager for any warning indicators.

Well after restarting i dont find any warning indicators in device manager

Start up repair will not fix this issue which is definitely related to your graphics card. First download the latest drivers but uninstall all existing graphics software and drivers before you install.

As Chronus says it sounds like the graphics card is failing, either that or maybe its not getting enough power. Personally I would open up the case and remove the card and give its fan a good clean, may as well clean others while your at it.

It is very easy to find as your monitor is plugged into it. So if unsure unplug the power cable and remove the side panel of your PC and then find the cable that goes from your monitor to the back of your PC that will be where you will find the graphics card. Remove that cable.The graphics card will be held in place by a screw remove the screw. Some slots in which the cards sit have small catches to lock the card in place, you will find this at the back of the slot furthest from the back of the pc. Just gently pull the catch towards the side while pulling the card up and it should pop out very easily.

You do not say what you will be replacing the graphics card with, so it might be necessary to remove the drivers which you will find in add and remove under Nvidia drivers.

Well i did as u told me but too bad i didnt have that spray thing i saw it at youtube on how to clean graphic card but i use my vacum :D and the computer doesnt make that noisy sound when booting but i noticed that on my graphic card and its fan written Gigabyte while i have been using nvidia driver bec when i installed windows 7 it automaticly downloaded nvidia driver so i thought its the right one so if some one can give me a link to download the suitable graphic driver.thnx

i found by graphic card box and i saw written on it Nvida 9400GT so i am downloading the driver from Gigabyte hope that stops the blue screen error .

Gigabyte is just the maker of your particular card but it is still a Nvidia graphics card.Although Windows 7 will install drivers for graphics etc, it is always best to get the most up to date drivers from,in your case, Nvidia.
