On my Dell it ment I had a fan failure. It's easy enough to replace.
As far as wiping you hard drive and doing a fresh install of xp, that is fairly striaght forward. Make sure your computer boots to the CD. Then restart your computer and boot the disk. It will give you a choice to delete all partitions. Choice that option and follow the on scene instructions. It will prompt you to create a new partition next. If you have the room I would make two partitions one for XP and your programs and one for your data(work, pictures, home work,..) so if you have to reinstall your OS you wont lose your data. Short of a hard drive failure.
