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.

Hi, fernando.
Can you reach Advanced Boot Options by pressing F8 at mobo splash screen?
Can the machine boot from Windows install media or some type of live CD?

Edit: What hardware/software changes have been made on the machine recently? Any peripherals (USB hard drives, memory cards, printers etc.) connected while trying to boot?

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.
