I installed the new SP2 and after rebooting, my video
resolution changed to a 4bit color (?).
I knew it had something to do with my video drivers, so I
went to the Device Manager, and (by mistake) disabled the
video drivers.
After rebooting, I can see the Windows logo and
everithing loading perfectly, but after that, all I have
is a pitch black screen.

I tried the safe mode boot, but it gets stuck loading a
Mup.sys driver, I tried the rest of booting modes and I
still get the black screen.

Any help? ideas? thougs?

Thanks

At bootup, press F8. Boot into VGA mode. Then reinstall your graphics
drivers.
