Check if your memory modules are a little bit loose.
If that does not help try restoring the system. If that does not work either then you should re-install your OS.

Boot the machine using your XP installation cd. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to load Recovery Console.
Select your operating system...it will usually be listed as 1: C:\WINDOWS...press the number key that corresponds to your operating system.
When prompted for the Admin password, just press Enter
This should take you to a command prompt...C:\WINDOWS>
Type chkdsk /r and press Enter
This should start a thorough check of the file system. Let it complete...it may take an hour or more and even appear to hang, back up, or start over...this is normal. Once this completes and is back at the command prompt, type exit and press Enter. Remove the cd from the drive and it should boot to Windows normally.
Let me know how you do with this.
