I would agree with Roland here. AFAIK, as he says, an OEM licence is irrevocably 'tied' to the hardware that it was originally installed upon at first activation.....including serial numbers. Therefore, nothing you can possibly do will allow it to work on another machine with different hardware specs. The only way you could do this is to move literally everything from your old machine to the new one.....in which case, you're still using the 'old' one (which is, I would guess, kind of defeating the object of the excercise..!)
Sorry, but I'm afraid this is one of those few Windows 'issues' that has absolutely no 'workaround' for it. The only way is to get hold of another copy of Windows that hasn't been activated (like an original, packaged copy of XP that will allow activation on up to 3 machines, I believe), do a fresh install, and laboriously re-install everything from scratch on the 'new' machine. If you've been using XP for any length of time (as I have), you tend to get into a routine of doing regular re-installs anyway. Which is why I have a special folder set-up on an external HDD which contains absolutely everything I need to do a 'new' install back to the condition XP was previously in.....including all necessary drivers, programs, and utilities. I even have it set-up in such a way that I just go through each successive folder in turn, until everything has been installed in the correct order. And after you've done it a few times, you can get through it all in 2-3 hours (instead of the 2-3 days it used to take me!)
It's just one of those Windows 'issues' you get used to. There are, I believe, various 'dodgy' versions of XP floating around the 'net which will install with an auto-activated license key.....but these are NOT condoned by the Forum administration (since M$ regularly 'trawl' sites like this to see if 'unofficial' advice is being given, and, given that Redmond have always appeared to consider litigation to be the answer to everything, I don't blame the staff on here one bit for not condoning such advice), and any attempts to solicit such advice will, I'm afraid, probably result in 'sanctions' being taken against you. Gotta play by the 'big boy's' rules, y'see..!
EDIT:- Found this, which may or may not have something to do with your problem (though I doubt it's anything other than hardware incompatibility. However, it just possibly could be that the POS-ready 'fix' meant that your old machine downloaded a driver update for the video card, which threw everything out.....there's a few unusual 'fixes' I've not come across before, like the bit about using a Win 7 install disc to repair your XP install [???] ). System specs ( of both machines) would help here.
If the old machine is using an AGP video card, it would show it to be somewhere between 12-15 yrs old.....correct?
