      Check the BOIS, the can be a setting for disabling the onboard VGA card and enable a PCI one.

      Also boot into windows using ur onboard VGA. Then do all of the driver installation first before rebooting.

      Basically XP does not understand you have a monitor. You see the Windows screen in boot because it using the safe mode VGA driver.
