Each item with a red cross indicates what the program considers to be a matter that requires attention.
On just the first image you have sent you will see that it is suggesting that issues exist re free space and defrag.
Not knowing you drive arrangement on that computer I cannot advise you further than to say - have a look at those issues - particularly I would look at the defrag issue it tends to suggest you have more or less total fragmentation.

If you have to attach anything further, would you please open them and send them as screenshots or whatever. I am sure you will appreciate that with the number of threads I may be working on, this is the most practical way of providing the information. - Thank you.

In your reply post please explain your drive/partition arrnagements.

I have 6 partitions on my PC:

Local Drive © - I have Windows XP Professional installed on this partition, I am not trying to fix that

I then have 4 partitions for movies, music etc... Which explains why they have such little space left

Then I have a 5th partition where I have my Windows XP installed, this is the one I am trying to fix.

But what are they please
ie
C xp Prof
I then have 4 partitions for movies, music etc... Which explains why they have such little space left

etc and what letter is allocated.
You will know that windows allocates drive letters somewhat randomly so I cannot work it out.

DRIVE G - NO FREE SPACE
You cannot, as far as I know, run a drive with NO FREE SPACE as the drive needs space merely to access the data.

I do not know enough about that drive setup to advise you.
However to return to the original problem
SP2 for Xp provided AGP drivers for the VIA with the Nvidia chipset that were newer and better than the original VIA chipset drivers from which the AGP driver was provided.

The driver was not provided separately from the SP updates, do it is not, as I understand the situation downloadable. That said it should be recovered on a scannow from either the CD if it included SP2 or from the SFC if the CD did not include SP2 by altering the registry key to point scannow in the direction of the SP files.

Unfortunately I do not believe I can help you further.
