Boot the PC and keep tapping the F8 key until you get set up options, check through to enable onboard graphics

This is for system restore but it may not improve things if you uninstalled the drivers

Boot the PC, keep tapping the delete key until you get set up, then you will have a number of screens, look through them until you see onboard graphics, change to use onboard graphics then press F10 to save and exit, type Y to confirm then reboot

Go with the repair then

It will leave data and programmes alone, make sure you use Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation

Windows Installation CD - Repair Current Installation: The process begins by booting the system with the XP installation CD. The CD drive must be set as the initial boot device in the computer BIOS. There are a number of different ways to access the BIOS, but pressing Delete on the initial boot screen is one of the most common methods. Watch the boot screen and it normally displays a message with the appropriate key sequence to grant BIOS access.

The boot sequence will continue. Again, watch the screen for a message to appear that the system is looking for a bootable CD ROM. Watch the monitor for the message that the CD has been auto-detected, followed by the “Press any key to boot CD” message. Don’t fall for the old joke about looking for the “Any” key and just hit the spacebar or any other key that’s convenient within the five second time span the message will be displayed.
