Default Really slow laptop

This laptop just runs so slowly, it takes forvever to load anything, it even struggles to play youtube videos, even as I'm typing this, the text isn't appearing as I type it instantly. It not a case of the laptop being "cluttered" I have formatted it several times, even ran a shreeder on the HDD. Here is the spec, I'm sure it is fully capable of running xp smoothly:

Compaq Presario 1500
Windows XP Home Edition
ATI Radeon IGP 340M 64MB
Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
Originally 256MB of RAM but I upgraded it to 1024MB and this didn't speed it up

Thanks for any help.

EDIT: Is it possibly a HDD problem in which case I'll get a new one?
