there has been 3 times that i remember having problems booting the computer after installing new drivers for Nvidia video cards. All three times i did NOT delete the old drivers before installing the new ones. Nvidia will not delete the original video drivers when you install new ones so there is a problem when XP tried to read both sets of drivers. What i do is delete the old drivers in control panel, then install the new drivers, then reboot the computer. XP will see the new drivers and load them.
