You disabled your display device?? Do you have onboard video or are you running off of a PCI/AGP/PCI Express video card?

No post?
Reset CMOS. Incase you dont know, open the computer and take out the battery, unplug the PSU, switch the blue jumper, plug in, boot, unplug, switch jumper to original position, put in battery. That should set display to default.
If the above doesnt work, and you want to re-install windows (since theres not really any more options) are you putting in the disc then restarting comp? Or are you just popping it in and waiting?
If it still doesnt work, format the drive using another computer. Its pretty much self explanitory. Take apart the whole comp, put it together with the formatted HD and boot from the XP disc.

I wouldn't say there are no options yet. Once he responds we will know what the options are.

Use advanced startup menu (where safemode is listed) then select VGA mode. Once booted, goto device manager and enable the stuff you disabled.

@juiceranch, whats resetting the CMOS gotta do with this fault lol.

Do you have a second video card you can plug into your comptuer? That one wouldn't be disabled so you should be able to recover/undo the disabling of your primary display adapter.
