If you have a windows xp cd, start the computer and boot with it and choose recovery console.
Then follow the instructions beginning at STEP 2
If you do not have a Windows XP CD, do the following
download RC.iso from the following link:
You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.
make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows. Open MY COMPUTER, choose HELP > ABOUT. Note the service pack and get the appropriate version of the iso burner power toy
After installation, reboot, then right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.
Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.
This will give you a recovery console to use to run
Insert the cd into the non-functioning PC
When boot begins, a windows setup will appear to start, but you will be taken to a recovery console.
You will need to select your windows installation by pressing a number, most likely 1
Windows will ask you for a password
If you have XP home, press enter...there is no password
If you have XP Pro, you need to enter the password you set when you installed your machine with XP Pro.
After entering the password, you will find yourself at a command prompt that looks like this
rename gagp30kx.sys gagp30kx.bak
windows should reboot

Do you have a second one laying around? (preferably one that uses a different kind of slot--pci, or agp, I think you are using the pci-e)
That is what I would try next
