Reset the BIOS to default (just to be sure) by removing the battery for about 2 minutes (easier than trying to find the jumper).
Mash on F8 as Windows first starts to load - this'll get you to the SafeMode screen. As I recall there was something in there about a VGA mode - try that.
Once you get in, go to Device Manager and uninstall the display adaptor (the GEForce 5200 card - not your monitor). You can do this by going to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Once in, find the little + sign next to Display Adapter and click on it to expose your GEForce 5200 card. Then right click on it and select "Uninstall". Answer Yes or OK to the questions to get out of the dialog (this won't wipe all your video - it'll just make the system rely on the generic VGA drivers) - then reboot the system.
Once the system reboots, the Add New Hardware wizard will start. Let it detect and install your card. Then, go to this link to download the latest XP drivers for the card: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_81.98.html
Double click on the downloaded file to install them and follow the prompts until done. Reboot one more time and you're finished!
