Depends on what these PCI things are. If there are no drives installed then they are not doing anything which may or may not be a problem. As to how many are listed that is dependant entirely on the hardware you have, there is no "normal" number.

Information on what these things are and the hardware you are using would take the guess work out of it.

Yes you do need to install drivers that are missing, whether it's for PCI devices or anything else, if they are shown as missing in Device Manager (yellow question mark).

Download them from your PC manufacturer's website. You will need to know the full model name of your PC.

We're not mind readers. You supplied absolutely no info or specs, so all we can do is guess:

Maybe you have too little RAM for XP?
Maybe your CPU is too weak?
Maybe the CPU is overheating & throttling?
Maybe you have so many garbage programs installed that they're bogging down the system?
Maybe your system is infected?
