It's possible that the XP is using the extra resource or processor usage, and there isn't anything that you can do. However, It's also possible that this machine was configurated for 2000, and that it just needs drivers for XP. You can start by going to IBM's support site and doing a bios flash to the most recent bios, and checking for a chip set driver update, patch, or for for XP. Also check for any processor speed stepping drivers or updated drivers. Try this and let me know.
