i have to agree with dizkiller. is better to change the word format with windows reinstall. put all your data in one folder in c:\, then boot in dos and delete everything except your folder with your data. with this you clean your drive and if you choose in xp installation, "leave the current file system intact (no changes)" on the format step you will loose none of your data and you will get a fresh installation.

Elementary!!! You have already replaced all devices but HDD! So your problem with hard disk.

It may be problem with:

1)Hard disk - buy a new one =)
2)File system - backup data and reinstall Windows

Have a fun
