Lag can be caused by reinstalling the Windows and then failing to install all the drivers. You may be missing a graphics driver.

TO find out what's in your computer, download and run this:

It will give you some clues to Google on to find drivers that work with your hardware.

Have you installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 and have you tried downloading all the Windows XP drivers for your motherboard ?

Also, you can work out the manufacturer of the offending device by extracting the PCI Vendor ID from the registry...

If you're on a broadband connection, you don't need it.
Best thing to do first is go to Windows Update, it may offer a driver update for your modem.

after what you have done---reinstalled the OS, you may need to defragmate the computer.
I also feel as if you are missing some drivers updates. You can go to the manufactures web site to optain the latest drivers.
