When you power it on does the text and Windows logo look ok? Try booting it into safe mode (hold down F8 key on power on).

nope same as above, it was fine after 30seconds of restaring then when like that gain!

hate to be the barer of bad news but its ******ed, i have an x57 and it went back about 6 times trying to get the problem.first off they 'reflowed the graphics chip' (i think this means re soldered but sum1 else may know better)
worked for few months time,
it went again they did this again it came back worked then instantly broke

when it went back agian it ended up with a new lcd and mobo


but i hope u can get it sorted... :-) maybe on the house insurance...?

edit, there will be a post on here somewhere documenting what happened if you wanna know more.

As Robcampo said, sounds faulty. Probaply needs a new motherboard.

Stick it on eBay, you should be able to get £100, may be a little less because it is an uncommon laptop brand.
