I'd try to reinstall on the host (and reboot).  Also, can you send a ctrl-alt-del and see what happens?  Turn off any other remote desktop software if there is any (like logmein, team veiwer, etc).  Also, maybe try tightVNC or ultraVNC.

On the XP machine, try installing the mirror driver for UltraVNC (assuming you are willing to use UltraVNC on the server-side)

You can also try updating the video driver on the XP machine. VNC, Windows, and the Display adapter all have to play nice at some level!

as a last resort try turning down the display acceleration on the display adapter (that can kill performance though, so not a good long-term solution)
