your screen jilts when you scroll because the vid drivers are not up to date or its running on VGA default

There are two possible explanations
1. You've got more than one windows XP cd and installed using the wrong one.
2. You weren't running XP 64 to begin with

XP 64 won't (and can't) just revert back to 32 bit windows XP.

I don't think that's what he was talking about.

Ya, sounds to me like the vid card drivers are wrong.. did you download and install drivers for the 64bit edition instead of the 32bit?
