Try booting XP in Safe Mode (when powering ON/restarting, hold F8 key until the menu appears, then select Safe Mode with command prompt).
Type in chkdsk C: /r /f

On the dell there are trouble shooting lights also. There are 4 on that unit. The sequence of what is on/off will also give us an idea of what is going on.

Look at the trouble shooting guide found HERE

This could possibly be bad or loose memory modules. Reseat the ram modules. Also reseat all of the power and data cables in the computer.
