Why don't you just install XP with the GeForce in and then switch to your new videocard XP is installed?

Make sure all the hardware is connected, maybe a memory module is loose or even a cable.

You could have also damaged the ATI board. I don't think the card and chipset would "Conflict".

They run on standards to interface with the rest of the computer. All the proprietary coding is transparent to the rest of the system (with the exception of SLI).

Static Electricity, Oil from your hands, forcing the board into the slot. Insufficient PSU damaging the boards, etc...

A thousand ways you can damage your board.

Your problem seems to be a lot more than a simple chipset vs video card mismatch. It could be an IRQ conflict in the bios, but I think that some peice of hardware is ill-connected or just plain ill.
