Is my card useless?

Hey all... Got this PC I'm trying to run until I get my decent machine built but it's giving me problems. Every time I try to boot up normally it shows the windows XP loading screen then goes to a black screen and does nothing. Tried to boot it again under "VGA mode" and it works fine under a really low resolution. Threw in a lesser graphics card and it works fine but the card is even crappier than the one that's giving me problems. The problematic one is an nVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX400 with 64mb of vram... Installed the proper drivers and checked to make sure that the monitor I am using is able to handle 1024x768 resolution. Just wondering if this card is completely unusable or if there is a fix to get it to run properly.

Running Windows XP SP3 on a Syntax SV266M(A) motherboard. I know that it is an old setup I have here but need to use it temporarily.

wow that thing probably just died due to old age. I don't think its worth it to fix the card even if you were able to. You can always buy a much better used one for like $20 off ebay or craigslist.

Yea... I'm blowing my extra monies on parts for this other box and was just wondering if this card could be saved for my backup pc...
