Question about Computers & Internet
Some computers have problems with having two operating systems, such as your xp and 2003. You could try deleting the 2003 server and downloading xp only.
If your os does not work after doing this then it is a safe bet that the problem lies with the xp software you have (It might have a corrupt file on it) and you might need to get a new copy of xp.
If all else fails then your 2003 server should be a fine substitute for your os

Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.
Reinstall Windows from a Disk
