I'm just guessing but from what you described in four two posts it sound like your DVD may be dying.
How old is the DVD? What are you computer specifications? Do a disk clean up and see if this helps.

Could the error writing to the hard drive be because it's going to fast for my computer if so how can i slow it down, but ill try your ideas and post what happens when i get the computer to actually turn on again, it hates me sometimes

DVD burner pump alot of data, and you maybe taking the hit from alack of RAM. I would bump up to 512mb or more.

The computer wouldn't start up so i just ended up completly reformatted my hard drive, and now im not getting problems with a disk write error but the video card still won't work when the dvd drive is in.

Are you loading the drivers from a disk or downloading for the web site? It's always best to download the latest drivers when possible.

I have the video cards drivers from the site, but not any for the DVD player ill see if i can find any hopefully it helps because it's impossible to play NWN with the onboard video card

and of course theres no updated drivers for it, could the problem be the world jsut hates me?

They work together fine before the driver is installed for the video card so perhaps an older version of the driver might work better? How do I get rid of the newer driver?
