The support page for that model doesn't show any video driver downloads. That usually means XP has native support for the hardware. But have you added a different video card? If so, what is it?

But it appears to be an intel board with the 845G series chipset. This is the intel XP download page for the onboard video:


Probably download and run the first one.

If you didn't use the Compaq restore software to reinstall, you really need to make sure 'all' your drivers are installed. That includes the motherboard, video adapter, and possibly others.
