Two issues that may or may not be related to your issue that I see

System Memory 384 MB (SDRAM)
This is barely enough to run OS let alone much of anything else.

Go HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

C: (NTFS) 114996 MB (13750 MB free)

120 gig HD with only 14 gigs free. This is less then 10% and XP likes a 15% free space zone.

As I said these may not be related to your problem but they should be addressed and we can do that if you so wish.
Let us know if you would like to and we will be happy to assist.

Take out the old hd and put the new 500 gig in it's place.
When you start up the system you will need to go into bios and change boot sequence to cdrom first.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

Hopefully you have already put the XP cd in the drive before all this. If everything is setup correctly you will get a black screen with the following message in the upper left corner:
"Push Any Key To Boot To Cd". When you see this then push any key and the cd will take over.
Follow the prompts or if you need assistance I will help.
