|You are using CDs that are not intended for the hardware profile of your computer. That is why you can't use ACPI.|
ACPI allows the operating system to configure the hardware instead of the BIOS handling that job. The disks you are using have drivers for different hardware than what is present in your computer.
Installing dozens of times in 4 years is NOT normal or expected.
You may also have hardware issues that are causing your to think you need to re-install Windows.
Open the case and look for dust inside. Your computer needs to be blown out. DO NOT vacuum it. Get canned compressed air from an office supply or computer store, or use an air compressor. Be sure to blow out the power supply from both ends. This will be messy so you may want to move the tower to a different location.
Then with the power disconnected, re-seat all cables, cards and memory. In the case of the memory, snap each module in and out 4 or 5 times to burnish the contacts.
Another issue is SATA hard drives are not natively supported by WinXP. So either you need to supply the SATA drivers or if available, set the BIOS to ;run the drives in an IDE compatibility mode.
Next time you try to install XP remove any add-in cards, printers, scanners, USB stuff, wireless keyboards or mice, etc.
After you get Windows running and updated then you can add those items back.
That should get you started.
