Do you have a Matrox Video Card? If you do, you would need to start in vga mode, remove the videocard drivers (set it back to vga mode only), uninstall all matrox software and then restart. once that has been accomplished, you will need to have the original drivers, either downloaded or on the original disks to re install.

FWIW, do you mean SP4 or NT 4? the latest service pack is 6.0a, you will have to re apply the sevice pack(s) once the drivers have been re installed.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
