Angry xp rebooting

Anyone help me with a little problem I have please.
I have just re-installed xp after a format now when I start the computer and the desktop appears I get a message telling me that my Graphics Card driver is causing the problems and before I can get into the system to delete the driver the computer just reboots itself and continuously does the same.
How can I delete the driver without waiting for the desktop to load.

Make sure the card is seated properly
try booting into safe mode , in device manager Remove the VC and reboot .Dont install the card when you reboot use
Driver cleaner 2 to remove any left over Drivers from previous installs .Then reinstall the card with the latest drivers .

also, what kind of vid card and what kind of chipset on the MBD? Via and NVidia have some issues. Also, try going into safe mode (not sure if you have) and set the adapter to standard pci graphics adapter and then get the most recent drivers. if need be delete the associated drivers (inf, vxd) and search for it in the registry. Unless you know EXACTLY what to look for, I would just suggest doing the beginning of this and forgo the regedit and the driver deletion or that'll cause a serious headache. However, if you DO have a via chipset (for AMD) and NVidia then do a search for "VIA NVIDIA"... there is a compatability problem there.. should hopefully have a patch.
