Help me plaese...

i have a hd44780 20*4 screen that use to work fine, but then one day it decided not to work correctly :~

the test screen works fine, but when data is applied into it the first 8*2 pixels dont work...

the wireing is all correct.
the first pic is the 'boot' screen and it shows that the pixels do work, but the second pic shows a full screen on 'w's but the first 8*2 doesn't display.
