Hello a_guys_compaq_ and welcome to G2G!

XP will run really slowly on a 766 MHz. The specs of the PC show that your computer ships with 64MB and 2MB integrated graphics which again isn't very good.

Sorry if i'm not anwsering your question but I don't see the point in trying to run XP on an ancient PC like this. You'd be better to stick with 98SE or 2000.
