clema do a clean install.back up all your data first though and if you havent got them already get xp drivers for your hardware.you dont have to do an upgrade with the upgrade disc as long as you have the me disk.a clean insall will be much more stable most people here recommend it.if you get stuck post back someone will help you.darren
