Try turning off all screensavers and power saving options from Desktop Properties and see if that makes any difference.

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

The Drive is going into sleep mode. Go to Control Panel\Power Settings and set Hard Drive to Never turn off

If the above does not work, go into BIOS setup and disable power saving. Save settings before you exit
