could try a ssytem restore to see if that helps or a repair the xp software using the disc. Im completely stuumped after that, i use to get, pops like that and i resolved by reinstalling the drivers and going to my computer riht click and properties and and seeing if there are any yellow questions marks and trying to reslove it from there, only do this if yu know what yur doing , in my case i diasbled the bluetooth, but in your case if you diasble the usb it may not work at all so be cautious.
