I recently got a new hard drive, so I installed windows xp on it for the first time. After installing XP, I installed my chipset and all other associated drivers from my motherboard CD. I rebooted my computer. I then installed the drivers from my video graphics card CD, and rebooted. During reboot the monitor goes blank and an amber indicator light turns on. This happens right after the windows xp loading screen shows, and right before the login screen appears. I do not want to download from the internet because I have been operating my computer without the drivers for some time now, and I need to know that the solution will work because in order to restore the computer i need to reformat the hard drive and install windows, again.

That is going to kind of limit any responses you will get
