Open Control Panel/Administrative tools/Services. Scroll down the list and look for Themes. If the Startup type is not Automatic, then double-click on the Themes Icon, and in the Themes Properties window, select Automatic for Startup type. Click Apply, OK.
Then go to Start menu, right click on MyComputer and select Properties. Choose the Advance tab. Under the Performance section, click on the Settings button. In the Performance Options window, select Visual effects tab, and select "Let windows choose what's best for my computer".
If you'd rather select Custom and set the performance options yourself, just make sure that the last two items are selected along with whatever else you decide to select. The last two items in the list ensure the visual styles of XP is used.
One more place to check. Right-click on the Start menu button and choose Properties. Select the Start Menu tab, and ensure Classic Menu is not selected... in other words, select the other Start menu option.
Restart your machine.
I was going to also suggest your luna theme (XP's theme) is corrupted, but since you are able to start it up using Display properties, it might not be. Try the above first and see what happens.
