O/S Windows XP w/SP2. The problem concerns a computer that is used to play games on and is not connected to the internet. Cannot achieve desktop status, so we tried the reinstallation disc and it won't start. Why won't the reinstallation disc start. We shut down with the disc in the carrier and rebooted and tried putting the disc in when the computer is on.

I guess, you either have the OS that is damage or you entered the wrong product key during OS installation. It would be appropriate if you could buy an OS software to a reliable computer sales or software seller.

You may need to change the boot order to boot from the CD/ROM. See info in link if needed
for accessing the bios of your particular computer.
