Windows XP-Pro boots up to the logon screen normally but then I get a not signal meseage on the monitor follow by no display at all. I can hear windows loading and the windows theme, the scanner and printer initializing. In other words windows is running but not dispay. I already try with a different monitor, different video card but not solution. Looks like the display driver is corrupted but I don't have a way to correct it. Safe mode does not work. Everything was working fine few days ago. Does any body knows a solution to this problem.

You said you tried a different display and a different video card? Did you also try different cables?
It's not the driver. Windows does not need a third party driver to be visible, only to fully utilize the capabilities of the video card. Even with a corrupt driver you would see an image on the screen. The "no signal" message means the display is not receiving a signal from the video card. This is almost certainly due to a bad display, a bad card, or bad cables.
