Windows XP Video Configuration Issues

Windows XP Video Configuration Issues

Recently I had my motherboard burn out on me. Needing the machine for work, I purchased a different motherboard and installed that. Generally a reinstall of windows is good at that point but I am not in a position to do that so I just decided I would live with it for now. When I can log-in, everything works fine, what doesn't is getting to the log-in prompt to begin with.

Did the old motherboard have onboard video as well? Were you using it, or were all the monitors pluged into the EVGA8600s (newegg's website implies that they have dual video ports). If so, try disabling the Onboard in BIOS, then pluging the monitors back into the EVGA8600s. This may get back to what Windows expects to see, since you have not reloaded all the drivers for the new MOBO.
