The Black Screen of Death (Immediately following the Welcome screen)

So I tried to start my computer this morning, and after putting in my password I get this sort of Welcome: To The Abyss. My best suspect is the video card, but to be honest I have been abusing the hard drive with Daz Studio (which it hates) and running not one, not two, but three competing Firewall/antivirus packages, one of which I think managed to convince me to kill it's own .exe. It was a cheap Costco HP pavilion to begin with, and most of the "good" content was backed up on a pair or external hard drives. But it does mean a visit to Fry's to see if I can get it raised from the dead.
