Those capacitors are toast...

 

The vga.sys error, that points to a part of the kernel driver within Windows XP.

It could be a corrupt Windows XP CD...again, same for me, XP is too far back for me...it's lost in my brain archives.

 

Also Windows XP had it weird quirks when installing Retail vs OEM versions and Service Packs.

I got this old motherboard in an old system and tried to boot it up. The 160gb wd blue ide drive had windows xp on it, but it would always stop loading at the loading bar screen. The vga signal out of the motherboard also looks really weird. When I tried to install windows xp on the system from a cd, it would give me an error saying that vga.sys is corrupted. I thought it might be a problem with the motherboard's igpu or something so I bought an old agp gpu (it's a Gigabyte Radeon 7000 64MB card) as the mobo doesn't have pcie. It fixed the vga signal (of course) but when i tried to install xp again it still said vga.sys was corrupted and wouldn't let me go any further. I tried advanced mode and safe mode and all that stuff and sometimes it would give the vga.sys error and sometimes it would give a blue screen that I could only see if I filmed the screen with my phone in slow motion. I caught a frame of it though. I'll post pictures of the motherboard and both of the errors I got when installing xp. 

Thanks for any help!

For anyone wondering, I know the socket on the motherboard is mPGA478 and the cpu is some celeron D @ 2.0ghz. The ram in there is 512mb of ddr1. I also know that between the two ide ports on there, one of them runs at 133 and the other at 33. And just in case, I also did try it with just one stick of ram in there, and I also tried another dvd drive. The one that came with it was a 56k cd drive and I tried a dvd drive & it didn't fix anything (though I didn't necessarily expect it to.) Also if anyone knows where I might be able to find drivers for the igpu and/or bios updates for the motherboard, that would be great. Thanks again!

Presuming you tried searching and may have found this already: https://theretroweb.com/motherboards/s/jetway-pm2mp

Haven't heard the Jetway name in a very long time. 

 

As for the vga.sys thing, I really can't remember that far back. I'd only suggest checking if your XP install source is free of errors.

It seems like I must've tried less than you think, I haven't tried that website yet. When I get home, I'll try that. Also how do I check if the xp install source is free of errors?

Your motherboard has numerous bad capacitors. (That's a very common problem with Socket 478 era boards.)

 

It's never going to be stable if its power delivery is sketchy.

That's another thing I thought might be a problem but failed to mention. With so many bad ones, I was surprised it still powers on. I wasn't planning on putting much effort into this anyway. Thanks for the info both of you
