sounds like a hardware issue not an XP issue. Hard to diagnose without your hardware configuration, but the first things I would start with is going to your computer manufacturers home site and see if theres a downloadable hard drive diagnostic tool, second thing to try is to see if you can find some sort of memory diagnostic, if you download Ubuntu it should come with a good one, I use it all the time. Beyond that I would test your PSU (Power Supply Unit) Another simple thing you might do is check all the capacitors on your motherboard. (the little round cylinders) they should be clean and perfectly symmetrical, no bulges or leaks. To provide you with better help, it would be usefull if you supplied us with the computer make/model, or if its a custom job a list of all the parts/specifications.
