Kobian Mercury Mother Board 18400gvp.
Intel celeron 2.13ghz processor.
NVRAM 512 MB recenlty replaced.

I recently had my mother board serviced and it was diagnosed of display chip failure.

Now i'm not able to boot windows xp sp2 - it keeps rebooting after loading drivers in SAFE mode  like mup.sys(which is the last line shown and keeps rebooting)

I tried reinstalling windows xp from xp sp2 cd -  but during loading drivers it gave mountmgr.sys corrupt
and the next time it says ohci1394.sys corrupt couldn't load windows.
I don't have any firewire card installed.

Let me know if you need additional information.

I'd take it back to whoever serviced it as it doesn't sound very healthy and it might be related to the previous work you had done.

i agree with the above; to be sure, try booting from another bootable cd :
