I was trying to connect my computer to my tv through my ATI 9600 AWI PRO
video card and I got it to work but it was at the wrong resolution on my tv.
I tried a few things but they didn't work so I uninstalled my ATI drivers in
order to update them. Before I rebooted I started to change my display
options and I think I accidently deselected my monitor as the primary display
device. I now boot up and the computer works fine but I can't see anything
on my screen after the windows startup.
PLEASE HELP!!!

Press F8 at Startup, choose Safe Mode and once in, reinstall the ATI
drivers.

Repair Installation of XP is probably a good next Step:
