unknown problem

Apologize if this is a common thing and I just haven't found it in the search function, but I've been having some issues. startup hangs (sometimes it stays at the blue screen), and when I log in, theres absolutely no graphics acceleration at all. Things chug, not even able to play anything and this includes avi, wmv, et al.


Few days ago I accidentally killed the power to the cpu twice, and starting up since then has never been the same. Prior to the cut power things were working perfectly, but things hang now, and i'll get the slow gray screen of death telling me to reboot if i ever do anything graphically intensive, or it will freeze.
