    There is no longer a way to factory reset Windows XP, it's too old. If you no longer have the recovery discs try a Windows 7 32 bit install, you might have better luck with that than with Windows 10. Either way, W7 or W10, you'll have to purchase a license. Is it still running OK with XP? You might find it easier to just wipe your data off and leave XP on it.
