You should be able to boot using the CD and reinstall Windows using a good CD.

Assuming you mean that you can't even get the computer to turn on what so ever, I don't think there is a way of my knowlege. If you can get it to turn on with the Windows XP disk in the CD-ROM, it should ask to press any key to boot the disk, and you should be able to. If not I suggest getting a new disk.
