Question 100 % ?

If this was right you wouldn't do anything.You would get an error message at about 60 %.
What are you useing to measure it ? Try
C:\WINDOWS\RSRCMTR.EXE
Let me know the 3 results.

You can't do this if the computer is useless and does nothing.

I see this as a new computer,new user not knowing how to use it.

one thing that can cause this,hardware is sharing the IRQ with the video card.
the sound card and the ethernet card like to share the IRQ with video card.
i don't remember how to check in windows.i check when i start up the computer.

Type RSRCMTR.EXE in the run menu .

You seem to be doing some things but not all you want,lets work on that,as your software etc may not be compatible with XP.
So what is it you "can't do "?
