Is it all screwed up in the BIOS and the boot screen ? If so then you might have had some kind of overheat problem.

If not then see if you can boot to VGA mode or try booting with ANY boot disk and see what that looks like so you take the O/S out of the equation.

ps - I don't think this is superantispyware related.

What version of windows?

Did you try reinstalling the drivers? Also, check to make sure magnifier isn't enabled, and check the item percentage boost settings in the display section of the CP.

There's a small chance it's SAS-related. OP, did you even review what was found by the scan? Do you know that it didn't identify a video driver file as infected? Can you boot into Safe Mode and review its logs?
