I can only guess that your original graphics card has been changed since the PC was new, so the driver on the recovery CD is no longer the correct one for the new card.
Run the recovery process again but don't mess with msconfig. look for the driver disk that was supplied with the new graphics card and install from that.
Alternatively, if the graphics card is the same one as when the system was new, you may have been supplied with another CD that just has "drivers and utilities" on it. Run that after doing a recovery and look for the graphics/video folder which will have the driver setup program inside it.
