First, you might want to quit beating the computer.
I've been working on them for years & one of the first things I learned is beating on them doesn't fix things or make them work better,
The first thing you might want to do is remove the sode cover & inspect the CPU heatsink/fan [that would be the one on the metherboard] to see if it is dirty or loose.
While you are in there see if you can see a model number on the motherboard & post it.
It actually sounds like you have 2 seperate issues.
On the XP not starting,
Turn it on & start tapping the F8 key
You should get a screen offering startup options
[might take a few times to get it]
Use the arrow key[s] to hilite Last known good configuration & press Enter.
