Try to boot the PC without the XP Home CD in the CD drive, and
keep pressing the F8 key until it comes up with a boot menu that
includes a Safe Mode option.
If you had the XP Pro CD I'd suggest doing a recovery, but XP Home doesn't have that option I don't think.
You may have to try a few times until the boot menu appears. Don't hold the F8 key down - keep pressing it!
When you get into Safe Mode, right click on My Computer and choose
Properties. Then go to Hardware tab (i think - not in winXP right now)
and choose device manager. Just remove the Video Card from the list
altogether, and then restart. Should force it to use generic video card
then check your video card model and look for the updated driver
