Default WinXP BootScreen loads... then Monitor goes blank/standbyes

My friend says that after he networked his computer in his house, now the computer does the Windows XP Boot Screen (Blue loading bar) but when it's time for Windows to show up, the monitor becomes BLACK/Green Light Turns Yellow/Standbyes.

What could the problem be? I just reformatted his computer for him a few days ago...

Can you boot to safe mode or OS disk?

He called me.

He said it works in 16-bit mode, not 32-bit mode colors.

Video driver update needed?

Hello,

Tell him to press F8, just before Windows XP loads, to bring up the boot options...and tell him to select Enable VGA Mode.
