 VgaSave disabled

How can I recover from disabling VgaSave Video driver in
WIN_XP Pro.  System boots up and then the screen goes blank
since no driver enabled.  I can't do anything.  I ran the
WIN_XP repair but it didn't help..... can you?

1.VGASave disabled - system knackered


On my laptop I have a GeForce2Go 64Mb and I have been trying to get
drivers to work - have tried installing the Geforce drivers to no
avail.  I thought that perhaps I should disable the current display
adaptor which was VGASAVE.  I went into safe mode and went to display
properties\Advanced and clicked on Stop - this didn't work so asked it
to disable the card on next boot.  I also clicked where it says device
usage and clicked Do not use this device (disable).  When I rebooted
there was a black screen.  You can move the mouse and if you click
randomly go into windows - but can't see what you are doing.

Next I tried Safe Mode - this just reboots when it gets to the bit
when should go into Windows
Next I tried Last Known Good Configuration - Same problem
Next I tried VGA mode - still no joy

I booted into recovery console and re-enabled the vgasave service
getting it to system start - still no joy
I tried copying files from the CD - vga.dll, vga.sys and vga.drv -
still no joy

I tried doing a repair of the installation - the screen is blank while
trying to go through repair

I believe all I need to do is to re-enable the bit where it says Use
this device (enable) but I don't know where this is set.

I don't have a floppy disk drive in my laptop so can't do try a
restore from a DOS prompt (system32\restore\rstrui.exe) - I tried from
Recovery Console but no joy.

Any ideas?

Thanks in Advance
