Perhaps its dead? Can you try another? I had mine go shortly after installing a new graphics card. No connection just timing..

Only got the one. its not been used that offten. would it have anything to do with re-istalling windows, cause since iv done that iv had nothing but trouble from different hardware and software?

If you've been inside, check all the connections.

The only other likely cause I can think of is that your motherboard drivers need updating for XP. Find the make and model of your motherboard (you may need to download and run Belarc Advisor free from click here), then check on the motherboard makers website.
