Excesive heat could cause these problems. Have you cleaned out dust, etc with compressed air?

When you say you haven't got a video card, do you mean you haven't got an add-in card and you are using onboard video?

Technically, you do have a Video Card, its just integrated into your motherboard. The troubleshooting guide linked to above still applies.

But why is this thread here when the OP has Windows XP installed. I thought this was a Windows 7 Forum

That would be my fault, John, since I was the one who originally responded to the OP. I must have missed the XP Pro in his System Specs.
