I was just going to start CSS when my pc just shut down automaticly. When i tried to start it up again i got some weird colors and signs on my screen. What could have happened? Is it my CPU or my GFX?

It's your GPU. It's artifacting.

i believe if the cpu is fried, it wont even boot, maybe even turn power on.

there are no problems with booting. It`s just plenty of artifacts on the screen when loading windows. And the screen goes black when i`m entering windows

Yes, indeed. If your computer is booting, the CPU is not the problem.
