If this fails to resolve the issue, I would have to agree with gerryf...that the drive may have gone South on you.

I'd like to try one more thing to test the DVD drive. Put your XP cd in the drive and reboot (you might check in BIOS to make sure that the DVD drive is set as first boot device). If the DVD drive recognizes the CD at this point...
Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's
Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
If it won't detect the cd at boot, I'm going to have to say I think the drive has simply rolled over and died...

You've got some kind of malware infection going there...We're going to have to get that cleaned up before we do much more on the operating system or we may end up just butting our heads into a wall. This may be part of the original problem or at least why we couldn't get anything we tried to work.
Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here. Make sure to run the CWShredder tool...
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
