Sorry to hear that you are having computer issues.
Have you tried tapping the Tab key when you boot up.
A couple of questions if I may;
What is the model name or number of the computer.
You have said that the HDD has been replaced, was this due to the issue that you are having now being present with the previous HDD.
Where did the replacement HDD come from and how was XP Pro installed on it, on another computer for example.
What you are describing may be a bad BIOS setting or BIOS chip.

As the problem was present I do feel it is a BIOS issue, was it a new CMOS battery that you tried.
Also when you wish to clear the CMOS keep in mind that some MBs behave differently and what works with one MB may not work with another, please see the attachment below;
Is the MB at the link the same as yours http://www.ecs.com.t...enuID=1&LanID=0
Can I ask whether any attempt had been made to overclock or flash the BIOS previous to this issue happening, are you using the SATA or IDE type of HDD, thanks.

As I said earlier not all MBs behave the same but one thing that you must do when trying to clear the CMOS is remove all power sources to the MB, with this in mind if you have not done so already can you disconnect all cables to the MB, remove the CMOS battery and then press the power on button on your case for a while as this will dispel any charge that may still be present in the circuits, leave the CMOS battery out for around 30 minutes or so and then replace it, try another CMOS battery if you can as it is not unknown for replacements to be bad, once the above has been done reassemble the computer and see if there is any change, let us know the outcome please.
And you are welcome BTW
