    Just a question: Why did you disable your Video Card?

    Try starting the PC in safe mode. If you can make it into safe mode, go to the device manager and re-enable it.

    How exactly did you disable it? In Device Manager, in the BIOS or what? If you Disabled it in the BIOS, you will need to reset your BIOS back to its default settings. To do this, take the cover off your PC and you should see a coin battery on the motherboard. Take that out and leave it out for about 1 minute. After that one minute is up, put the battery back in, making sure it is around the right way.

    If you Disabled it in Device manager, do what mailpup suggested and try and get to Device manager via safe mode. To get to safe mode, press F8 right before the Windows start up screen appears, then select safe mode. If you cant see anything at all (as in, nothing appears on the screen when you turn your PC on at all). Then try and reset the BIOS like i said.
