Windows 2000 is a good, secure, and stable operating system for most computers and seems to work on "borderline" machines that don't have large processors or large amounts of RAM. In my experience, WinXP requires more of everything to run well. Windows XP probably won't fix the problems you were having with Win2000. Hardware or software problems will still be there and will need to be identified and fixed.

Just my opinion.
