KOTOR2 Works and doesn't work

I have a peculiar problem with TSL, I used to play it on Vista with no problems, and downgraded to XP. Now I have problems playing it. Sometimes the game works and sometimes it doesn't. When it does work, I cannot start a new game because it crashes upon reaching the prolouge, but I downloaded a save that starts right after on Peragus, and it works fine there. After working for a while, it encounters an error and closes. When I try to play again, it won't let me get to the main menu. I have reinstalled and repatched it several times. I have fooled around with the resolution and the other options like compatibility a lot already, and it does have an effect of getting to the main menu sometimes, but I can't get any further. Can anyone help me with this peculiar problem?

Update: I found a temporary fix that I will have to do every time I start the game, but it doesn't fix the issue with the prolougue, and the game still crashes after a while of playing, or a few minutes, but is still playable to an extent, I have to go into swkotor2.ini and change CurSithLord=2 to CurSithLord=3, so traya shows up instead of nihilus, and i can access the main menu, otherwise I cannot. I am not sure why this works, but it does.Btw my video card driver version is NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO 185.85.
Can someone please help me, this is one of my favorite games, I don't want to play it bugged like this.

Please help, my problem is far more extensive than I was originally led to believe. I cannot get past the Rebuilt Jedi Enclave Council scene, dark or light side, if there is any combat or force powers used in the Council cutscene, the game crashes. My problem with the peragus intro is no more, I fixed it. Yet I still have difficulties. The game crashes more frequently now than before, I am practically begging, please help! My specs now are:

I'm still having trouble, i've read through several topics, no one seems to have the same problem I do, which also explains why no one has posted to help. While the peragus problem I had is solved, I cannot beat the game, only cheating can help, but I feel I am denied critical plot points, and the game keeps crashing every so often.
Do you think rolling back my Nvidia geforce 9600 gso to an earlier version would solve it? I'm not sure it would help much.
Please help! Now i'm practically begging.
