I have windows XP sp2 home edition. Had a problem with video card driver
and as I was updating , it requested I erase old driver but new install
locked up and did not complete. Computer froze and on re-boot after running
through normal sequence I get blank screen with flashing curser in upper left
corner. Is there a way to get back and perform a restore either from
computer or the windows CD? As I stated, unable to get any picture on screen.

many thanks,
