Also in XP when you hold F8 at startup there is an option for VGA mode.

 

That loads everything but the VGA driver, you can change it from that aswell.

My brother had almost the exact same problem at a school that received charity computers. This is the long way around but as a last resort, grab a monitor that will display the resolution, plug it in for one minute, back down the resolution and frequency to 60HZ, and then plug in the older one again. Do this for each computer. Pain in the butt, but a sure fix. The safe mode/vga options above should have worked though.
