If the hard drive manufacturer has a set up utility which writes zeros to the drive use that before installing XP, use the full option which adds hours to the install but worth it
Had a PC which went from blue screening frequently to Zero blue screens after writing zeros
One thing to look out for is when you use the default NTFS long, not quick format during set up, check it is creating RAW1 partition on C, if it is any different, press the reset button, press D at the format section, type L to confirm and it will partition on C
