I am trying to reinstall windows xp using the cd I have, but when i tried to
it said it was impossible because it was outdated, 2002. When I looked at the
disk it was someyear-2001. I recently online installed service pack 2. Is
this why it can't install?

You will have to slipstream the original XP CD with the SP2 download and
then burn a new CD which will become an XP w/SP2 CD. A Google search on
slipstream will give instructions or download AutoStreamer from here:

You need to perform a Repair installation, then re-apply any updates since your CD was manufactured.

Repair the Windows XP Installation

Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. For more information about how to do this, please refer to your computer's documentation or contact your computer manufacturer.

Remove any floppy disks and ZIP disks from their respective drives. Insert your Windows XP compact disc (CD) into your CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.

(You can also boot with a Windows 98/Me Startup disk with CD support and run WINNT.EXE in the I386 folder on the CD)

When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

When you see the following message displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

At this point an option to press R to enter the Recovery Console is displayed. Do not select this option.

On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement screen, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press the R key to repair Windows XP.

Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.
