I'm trying to understand your request.

 

Is it your phone or computer that's not working right. or both? If your phone is very recent, it may not be compatible with XP,

Save the projects you're working on as a precaution & try System Restore, if you don't have a backup to fall back on.

 

If successful, the computer will be restored to working condition.

 

Should that not work, you can also try booting & pressing the F8 key, like you're going to run in Safe Mode, but select "Last Known Good Configuration". Only do this if System Restore doesn't do the trick, as this is a one time shot, for a while.

Glad to have been of help.

 

This should serve as a reminder that you should use a backup app to create images of your XP install. You were lucky this time, as System Restore doesn't always fix issues. The best restore point one can have is a backup of the computer when it's in known working condition.

 

For XP users, this is more critical than ever.
