    You say you are reinstalling the O/S. How are you doing this? In other words, are you using the Dell system disk? Are you doing a repair or a clean install?
    Have you run chkdsk before you started?

I fought with this issue for DAYS. Finally got a newer issue of the DELL XPpro reinstallation CD and it went right through the re-install.

After Reinstalling Window XP did you install the driver for your graphic adapter (VGA driver). If you'll not install the graphic driver it happen with the resolution, and about your mouse. you might be using USB mouse and it need to install driver too, but in case of your mouse window automatically takes the driver , you don't need to do anything.

I believe you might be canceling the installation of HUMAN INTERFACE DEVICE installation during the time of your window start up process.

About your Display, I hope you might have the proper driver installation CD.

All The BEST and hope i could help you.
