Is this before you press F8 or after you have chosen safe mode ?

Please try this.
To reboot in Enable VGA Mode
You can boot in Enable VGA Mode by restarting your computer, then continually tapping F8 until a menu appears.
Use your up arrow key to highlight Enable VGA Mode, then hit enter.

please try "Last Known Good Configuration"
Use the F8 key again, but instead of safe mode choose Last Known Good Configuration.

If the VGA mode worked, then you likely have a problem with the graphics card or the drivers for it.
If you installed it yourself, then I recommend uninstalling it and trying a reinstall.

i did from a website I was told to go there type in my computer stats and then download the graphics card that showed up


Let's try the drivers from SiS. Unfortunately I can't give them to you through a direct link. You'll have to do the following :

Go to this link : http://www.sis.com/download/
Check the box and Agree the agreement. You'll come on a page with 3 drop-down lists. In the first one choose Windows XP
In the second one choose IGP graphic drivers
In the third one choose SiS 650 SiS 740 series
Click on Go. Select a location close to where you live and download the SiS UniVGA3 Graphics Driver. Save it to some folder you'll remember.

That's for the graphic drivers. Now back to http://www.sis.com/download/
First box : Windows XP
Second box : Audio drivers
Third box : SiS 7012
Then click go and download the file.

Go to where you download those 2 files, unzip and run the .exe file.

I have very little knowledge about the installation of graphics cards.
This forum is Malware specific and is not geared to this type of problem
I would recommend that you go to Bleeping Computer hardware forum.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum7.html
There will be somebody there who is more qualified to help than I am.
