Can you boot into safe mode? If you can then its a graphics driver issue.

Like ace said, goto safe mode, check in device manager. Check your graphics driver version. and then if it isnt the newest then get them, and if you have got the newest drivers, then get the previous version.

You need to install Drivers for ALL of those things, you didn't do A clean install so you lost the original drivers. You go type in the item you have and search for the drivers. If you want post specs of the computer and I will find them for you.

i had same problem with my pc i had a ghost image stored on a cd that came with pc but it got scratched so i had to reinstall xp and wen i did i had same problem u have + no sound. check c if u have sound if u dnt then u r gonna need to download chipset drivers or if u have the cd even better this was really difficult for me as my pc was really old ....


sorry to say coz mine was old my sound still is not very clear and the text on my screen is blurry hope your pc is newer than mine.


chipset drivers only applys to onboard
