I tried uninstalling/re-installing the drivers but that didn't work I can't re-install them because the graphcis card isn't hooked up and I can't hook it up because then it won't boot up... so yeah I have no idea what to do.
Sounds like you have multiple problems arising from your old machine.
For starters what kind of system do you have, provide me some specs so I know what I'm dealing with.
Here is one set of drivers that may work later on:
ATI Radeon 9200 Catalyst Software Suite v.9.7 download for Windows Vista, Windows 7
If you can get your machine to boot, lets uninstall the drivers from safemode in windows.
Uninstalling ATI catalyst Manager and ATI catalyst control center. - Microsoft Community
As for uninstalling ATI catalyst, boot into Safe Mode, then try uninstalling it again from the Programs and Features item in Control Panel, if the problem persist, try the follwing:
Use the ATI Removal Tool:
1. Download and install Uninstall Tool.
2. Find ATI product in the programs list (or just type "ati" to find it immediately).
3. Double click on the found item in the list and wait while uninstall process is finished. Carefully follow all uninstaller's instructions.
4. Uninstall Tool will remove all leftover traces afterwards (using Uninstall Wizard ™ technology).
5. Reboot your computer.
