Laptop or Desktop? - Desktop
Dell is the make but what model of Dell is it? - I cant get to "my computer" so I dont know the model of it
How old is the system? - Not sure, but its not real new and its xp
Is the disk you are using a Recovery Disk? I dont think so... its a windows xp home
If desktop when was the last time you opened it and cleaned the inside out? - I did that the other day and again just now, even went and unpluged and pluged things back in
This sounds like a possible overheating problem and the system rebooting is causing problems with the OS.

This issue seems to be a inherited problem with Dell systems.
How old is the XP disk you are using?
Does it say XP with SP2 or 3 on it?
If not you may have to slipstream SP2 into a new disk with XP.
Follow these directions on How To Create A Slipstream Disk
