    That's fine, I'll try with and without my speakers tonight. but can we still see the safe mode even if the monitor doesn't show anything?

    The menu must be there for Safe Mode selection.
    But without any picture on the monitor, nothing to help atm.

    I've looked into the matter and I don't have any clue of what's going on... I did some cleaning in my case ( It needed some) and looked all the connexions on the mainboard but nothing is unusual. Sometimes I get to have the lights on my keyboard after a little while, telling me that windows is booted. But a question popped in my mind; Does daemontools have any drivers that starts itself at the boot of the computer? If this is the case, can I disable the boot of these drivers?
    I've read that sptd.sys is the first driver to be launched. Could it be the source?
    Thank you.

    DT is a Windows program and is therefore only active in Windows, not in boot (e. g. BIOS).

    I'll try to put my HDD into another computer and delete all the files related to Daemontools to see if it changes anything. My win7 is a fresh installation (1 week old) so I would'nt lose anything too valuable if I were to reinstall it on another computer (if this error is software related). I don't think that my CPU, GPU or Mainboard are faulty nor my RAM. There is an indicator on the back of my 8800GTX that lights up if the card is faulty/fried/misplaced. The screen on my motherboard tells me step-by-step the components that are booted and there are no pieces of hardware that doesn't load incorrectly. I'll give it a try.

    Seems that my BIOS is faulty after all, watched the screen behing my mainboard as the PC was booting and saw CMOS ERR (CMOS error). I think that my BIOS is corrupted. There are two solutions :
    1- Make a crisis recovery disk
    2- Order a new BIOS chip from a reseller or the manufacturer
