I agree that this is most likely hardware... but since you are unable to login to the pc except for in Safe Mode... if you do not have a means of installing a driver at this time, I would run a repair install of Windows XP... the way you do this is...
-Boot up to the XP cd
-Hit Enter at the first prompt (do not enter the recovery console, install windows)
-2nd prompt hit F8 to accept the license agreement
-Now hit R to run a repair install of Windows XP
-have your license product key available as you will need it...
wait about 45 minutes and you should be able to boot up in normal mode.
