I would try to start it up in safe mode. This can tell you whether it's a display (physical) issue, or a driver (software) issue. You can do this by hitting the F8 button as soon as you start the computer and it brings up a prompt. At the Advanced system prompt, choose "Safe Mode with Networking" and see if it works then. If it does, I would suggest you undo an changes in the drivers that you made before.
Hi yes try this, if no joy come back to me.

To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive,
reboot pc pressing ESC button, or delete in
some machines. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to
CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait
for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use
for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this
drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes
everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot
afterwards and reinstall operating system.
What programs are installed on the machine? there may be a file that's conflicting with one of the updates. You may leave automatic updates turned off. Looking for the culprit will require and will be easier if a tech will check the computer onsite or thru remote access.
Either something has wiped out your operating system and you need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall it, or your hard drive went Since it worked fine the day before and just did this right away, my guess it that your hard drive went bad. But you can try both options though. Hope this helps.
