what kind of problems is it giving you, and are you using a restore disc of some sort, or is it a retail version of ME.
what are the specs on your laptop? it should be okay to use with xp, maybe you just needed to clean up the compter a little bit, spyware/adware etc. anything to not have to use windows ME.
