I was just asking that is my laptop compatible for windows xp, i am not sure, I really like Windows 7 than XP.
Also i want to disable unnecessary services and other gadgets to save battery power and speed up the performance. How i do that?

If you have Windows 7, why on earth would you want to use XP? Windows 7 is by far superior to XP on every single level (including performance).

I have Windows 7 Home Premium installed on my laptop and virtualization means i run Windows XP inside Windows 7? and yes i have runned the tool and it says that "This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization"
Also i want to disable unnecessary services and other gadgets to save battery power.

Which version of Windows 7 is it? I think it has to be W7 Professional and up before you can run WindowsXP in XPMode and that's only if your hardware supports virtualization.
You can run this from M$ to check the virtualization part:
