Try a google search for a program called 'pcdecrapifier' it checks for pre-installed software that you may not need. No you can't remove older windows updates, I believe the newer updates build on top of the older ones. Also I use a program called Revo Uninstaller, to remove programs and any left over files and folders and registery files that windows doesn't. Hope this helps.

That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.
Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.
On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings. On other makes the procedure can be slightly different. Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see: Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .
You probably have a problem with your power adapter. Since you mentioned that the battery discharges when connected to the adapter, it means that the charger is acting as a load instead of the other way around. This is a typical behavior of a defective charger.
Try to check the output of your adaptor using any voltmeter. The voltage reading should be approximately close to the voltage rating as printed at the back of your laptop. If not, then its wiser to buy a new ac adapter instead of sending it for repair to electronic shops. Most of these chargers are no longer reliable when repaired, and might cause more problem to the laptop instead.
