I've uninstalled my vga drivers screen goes blank when XP sp3 loads

By masch62 ·
My graphics card drivers(nvidia mx440 XPsp3) didn't show in device manager, only default vga drivers - even after installing new drivers (I've installed graphics drivers in dozens of computers). In an attempt to force things along I uninstalled the vga drivers in device manager (stupid idea). Now after windows loads I get a completely blank screen (no text, no cursor - nothing).
Tried safe mode, vga mode, safe mode with cursor - nothing. How do I enable vga mode again.

Use one of the Boot Disc's

Like the Ultimate Boot CD

or the System Rescue CD

and then when running use that to reinitialize the Drivers. The NVidia MX440 don't need any extra drivers as they are included with XP. :)
