Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.
Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.

Just do as I say - it will be ok and sort itself out - the screen will not go blank and the drivers are still installed in Windows and will just be reinstalled, thus associating themselves with the card again. No internet connection is needed and the drivers will be reinstalled automatically without the need for user input.
To gain access to that which is 'off screen' push the mouse against the edge of the screen and it should move the display into view

You will need a xp cd you need to boot from the cd and do windows repair when that option comes up. Don't do the repair console go pass that you will see the repair option.

You must have recently installed an application or hardware that corrupted your Operating System (OS).
You need to perform a system repair using your OS installation CD. Your data will not be lost.
If this doesnt work, reinstall your OS using your OS installation CD to fix this problem, how ever, all your data in your system partition will be lost.

SOURCE: i have a gateway kav60 that wont start past the boot menu, it wont start in any mode(safe mode, normal, or safe with prompt). i have nothing hooked up to it, all i did was install new updates from win
Try running the Check Disk Utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
