Failed WMP install leaves me in BSOD/reboot loop

I attempted to install the latest Windows Media Player, it failed and asked me to reboot and try again, and now I'm locked in a reboot - blue screen of death - reboot loop. Help!

The blue screen is just after the Windows XP logo with the initial loading progress bar. BSOD flashes by (too quick to read) before rebooting again. On reboot, I'm asked to try starting in safe mode, safe w/network, safe w/something else, last good config, or normal. All options produce the blue screen and reboot.
I've reloaded BIOS defaults and removed an unused TV tuner card. Others seem seated properly on the mobo.
System is Athlon64 3200+, NVidia 6600GT, Asus mobo, 1GB ram.
Sigh. I don't want to reinstall XP just yet, so is there any other advice? Thanks!
