That doesn't mean the system has a refrigerant charge in it, only that it has some pressure (could be air) in it.

I'll assume it's low side PSI you're talking about, which is too high. Either you're charging it without it running, or you've overcharged it (which will cause it no also not get cold).

Replace the compressor pulley, the bearings are shot, but it sounds like you need a little more work done.
