Try starting in safe mode if there is on on xp lol dont use it remove the card in device manager and let windows redetect it then direct it to the new drivers when asked.

WAs it a new detonator driver that you downloaded. if so what version was it? I have exactly the same thing but after win xp screen monitor goes off for 10-15 seconds then comes back on at logon screen. execellent driver apart from that.
It seems to cut the time win xp logo is on the screen by a lot of time and just turns monitor off for the amount it used to show.
