Compaq Presario 2200 laptop is not booting to Windows XP.

I get an error message right after the Windows XP loading screen (the screen with the loading bar). After the loading screen it goes blank for a few seconds, and finally to a BSOD that says "The Video Driver Failed to Initialize". After that appears, it starts the whole process again.

I tried Windows Recovery. I can't safe mode it, and choosing previous working settings doesn't work either.

Help, please?

Did you try a Windows recovery or was it a System Restore? Have you tried 'Last Known Good Configuration'?

Upon boot tap the F8 key and when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.

If it works try updating your video driver.

I used the Windows XP disk to try to repair.
Using 'Last Known Good Configuration' still results in a BSOD.
