Help, everything on the screen is blue!

I was trying to copy some pictures from a cd to my desktop, the pictures
were on the desktop but I had boxes which told me that they were copying the
images. After a while I tried to cancel and close the boxes but nothing to
do so I rebooted the computer. It usually makes everything come back and
close the application that I am not sure how to kill. When I came back to
the computer I had only a black screen, so I unplug it, used the excuse to
put the nvidia card back in it and turn it back on. It had trouble getting
to the regular desktop, long, very long before it works and now everything
is blue. I had this card installed before and working without problem and I
did exactly what I did when I put it in first, so I am not sure it comes
from the card, I think it has something to do with the pictures I was trying
to copy and open as they were made by a windows machine, can somebody tell
me where I would need to look to find out what is messed up in the computer
and how?
The applications seem to be working OK but when I do ls -l I don't have the
name of the file listed anymore, only the autorization, owner, group, size,
date, and hours, very few files still have a name, but if I open my home
everything is ok, the name are still here! Must have done something but I
don't know what.
Thank you
