not much of a fix, but I know that I had problems when I installed xp over ME. I have also heard of many others with the same problem, I had to get a full version of XP, and have had no problems ever since. I know this probably doesn't help, but, its just my expirence.

What are the others? Try Last known good configuration if its there.

If not a Repair Install should work. See How To Run a Repair Install on that page. Revisit Windows Updates right away if you do that.
