I reinstalled windows and I had some problems with the nvidia driver to install because the driver software said everytime that it could not find hardware that is compatible.
I then uninstalled the nvidia software and tried to get it to work but still it said that the hardware is not compatible.
I the checked the system properties(device manager)and saw that there was no vga card displayed. I then went to the advanced tab of the display properties and saw that it did not detect the graphics card which is a Nvidia GeForce 6200. I then went to the properties of the adapter and set the device usage tab to " do not use this device " and then restarted the pc. Now I do not have anything shown in XP. As soon as the graphics drivers are loaded it seems that No graphics are displayed.
I EVEN TRIED TO RELOAD WINDOWS. EVERYTHING WORKS FINE UNTIL XP LOADS GRAPHICS DRIVERS AND THEN THE SCREEN IS BLANK AGAIN

Did you get any Motherboard drivers (Chipset Drivers) on Disk with that PC?

So you do not see anything in Safemode either.....??

1. Restart your computer.
2. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
