|I agree with Richard59. 128MB is WAY too little RAM for XP. It must have run like crap. |
Why did you format? All you had to do was download SP2 from Microsoft & install it....formatting was unnecessary. And why would you go for SP2 instead of SP3?
Download SP2 for WinXP
Download SP3 for WinXP
Regardless, it's pointless to run XP on a system with just 128MB RAM. If you can't (or won't) upgrade to at least 512MB, choose a different OS. How about Windows 2000? Also, it's generally better to format small HDDs as FAT32 unless you intend to store files that are larger than 4GB (which I doubt).
