With no other information than what you offer here, the answers are very general.

If your video card has failed no software download will fix it. If on the other hand, you do not have the correct software for your video card, please look on the card for a model number or name of the video card. From this you should be able to find the correct software for the video card.

It would be far easier to use a friends computer to find the correct drivers for your video card and download them. Then burn the drivers to a CD and if you can get your computer to boot up install the drivers to correct the video display.

Windows default drivers, while quite ugly, will work to find the correct drivers on the internet.

If you are saying you have no video at all, then you need to buy a new video card. I have never had a problem with Windows XP not having some kind of display if the video card does work.
