Hope to refurb my refurb and keep it going with Windows XP another 5+ years.

XP doesn't have a 5+ year lifespan left.

What browser are you using? The first issue is going to be that support will end for the levels of IE that will run on XP.

The XP clock just dropped below the 500 day mark.

Disk drives do crash at unpredictable times. I hope that the drive you bought is supported by the HP laptop.
