Answers :

Sounds like you have ati graphics,make sure you are using the right driver,there are a lot of them,is there a graphics program in the add remove programs that you are forgetting about,,try uninstalling all the monitors in the device manager along with the display driver,if nothing works just boot to windows disc on restart using f12 or whatever key gives you the one time boot menu,and repair or reinstall xp,how are you planning to flash bios?be very carefull! if you cant even get windows to boot up,but you can still access the bios on restart,the bios arent your problem,its windows xp,try repair option first otherwise delete all partitions on hd,create new partition format and start fresh,good rule of thumb if the comptuer turns on and you can access the bios,then leave the bios alone!set them to factory default reinstall windows then when your up and running get the correct bios upgrade and flash good luck
