If I had to guess when you reinstalled XP you never deleted the old partition that the original XP was on and created a new one with another setup of XP. My idea would be to reformat again and make sure when you get to the selection screen for partitions is to delete all of them and then install XP on the only partition left. After you reformat get all your windows updates and drivers back up to date so your fps get back up.
