XP SP2 won't boot into Safe Mode

  BBez 12:30 30 Jul 2006

hi, got an old Athlon 700MHz CPU with a NVIDIA GForce 4 video card which hangs on boot screen.

When i try Safe Mode it hangs on loading the file WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\amdagp.sys

I've already googled it but can't find a solution to get SP2 uninstalled as it appears to be the relative file included with SP2 that is causing the crash...

I really can do without formatting as all my photo's etc are on the c:\ drive in my docs...

any help to get it running, tia...
