What system specs do you have???
The system is not performing as expected
Some software is not compatible for windows XP, try and find newer versions of the software and update to fix there problem. Most of your drivers should not work iether, you must also find new up-to-date drivers.
unable to reinstall some of the software

two things here
using the Windows XP software that came with my Dell laptop
#1 was this a dell recovery cd...if so...then that can't be used for any other machine other than the dell laptop
#2...if it was an actual windows cd...was it OEM? if so...that as well cannot LEGALLY be used on another machine other than the one it came with
what i SUGGEST you do is purchase the xp upgrade version and use it to install xp on the viewsonic computer (this assumes that you have the original 98 disks that came with the viewsonic computer) if you don't have those disks then you'll have to buy the full version of xp
