I'm assuming you've rebooted before attempting to uninstall/install?

Sometimes resources don't get freed and you need to reboot before you can get TM to startup again.

If you didn't, then you prolly hosed the system. try uninstalling and reinstalling the video drivers.

assuming you have an nvidia card - reinstall the detonator drivers, make sure when you run tm you leave soime system resources for it, and if you know your way around the bios, enable the line that says "assign irq to agp" (if its an agp card).. sounds like either your bios or driver went tits up.
