Answers :

Install all the latest drivers for your computer from the manufacturers website for the motherboard ( chipset drivers ) the graphics card ( which will help with the display ) and your network card and anything else you need to install driver wise.

This will allow your operating system ( windows xp sp 3 ) to know how to use or communicate with the hardware devices ie graphics card, motherboard etc.
