I noticed in your specs you have GF 2 with v40.72. Try downgrading to v29.32. If you uninstall GF through the add/remove when you boot XP will load the driver it has. See how that goes. If the problem is gone either stick with it or try 29.32.

i'll try installing the drivers, and if that dont work, i'll repair the windows installation. is directx 9 worth installing if i get everying working again?

the easiest way to get your old drivers back is to use the Device Manager, and choose "Roll Back Drivers" XP will reinstall the last set of video drivers before you updated them... as for the game problems with DX9... you may have to reinstall the games... so that they make the correct associations with the DX9 files...

baser5nature is right, that would be the easiest way. If that doesn't work try doing a system restore to a while back not just a day or two (of a few weeks if needed). You might loose a lot of you settings and stuff, but it is a lot better then having your games crashing or having to format your hd.
