When my system boots the screen is overrun with " " " marks everywhere and as it loads the words on the screen are all misspells as do the command's when I type them in, they still give the expected response thought. I cannot figure this out do you have any Ideas for me.?

At a guess your video card is failing.  Or it could be some other part

cause.  The usual way of confirming this sort of diagnosis is to swap
out the suspect parts and see if the problem goes away or not.
