If the XP CD that you have is identical to XP version on your computer, place it in the driver, click Start > run and in the dialog box type sfc /scannow (please note the space before /). Click OK and let XP check for corrupt or missing windows system files. Let the process run to the end at which the dialog box just disappear.

Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).
Click on Startup tab.
Click Disable all
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
Click Services tab.
Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
Click Disable all.
Restart computer in Normal Mode.
NOTE. If you use different firewall, than Windows firewall, turn Windows firewall on, just for this test, since your regular firewall won't be running.
If you use Windows firewall, you're fine.

Now, you need to go back to "msconfig" and start re-enabling services and startups, you just disabled, but one-by-one, restarting computer after each item until you find the culprit.
