windows won't boot up.

Before starting anything, let me tell you that i just purchased this dell studio 16 xps laptop like 6 months ago and it was working flawlessly but yesterday i was doing some heavy work in photoshop and suddenly system began to slow down.. i thot it was a normal scratch disk full issue and closed the laptop as it wasn't that important..

then in night i opened my lappy did usual work and closed it but when i again opened it late night it just didn load. it just stops at welcome screen.. (it doesn't even say welcome..it just shows the background and loading curser) and after few seconds the screen started flickering and the rate of flickering kept on increasing.. i tried restarting..restarting after removing the battery but all in vain..
then i started using command promt+networking.. tried uninstalling , reinstalling latest upgrades but none of them helped..
i tried many solutions posted on the net..none of them worked

MY DRIVER: ATI MOBILITY RADEO HD 4670 (1 GB)
MY OS: WIN 7 Home premium 64 bit.

Please help i have much of my colg rendering work to be done..i have to submit it in 2 days i got this shit problem up with me

EDIT: I WILL DESIGN A SEXY WEB 2.0 LOGO FOR THE GUY WHO HELPS ME THROUGH THE PROBLEM...or just pay him a small token of thanks via paypal..please guys i really need to get it fixed ASAP otherwise i will fail in the test.

Was the CPU overclocked/underclocked?
Was the GPU overclocked/underclocked?
Were you using your hardisk as VRAM or RAM?

Try installing Ubuntu on it and see if that OS can boot up on it
And if you want to use windows software on it download WineHQ

Here are the download links for the software

If not, try the latest...

No. The problem is only this that i cannot access normal mode. the screen starts flickering more and more eventually on the welcome screen itself.
I can access via SM.
