Please explain what you mean by "it goes for a little while and then it shuts down"
Does the notebook shutdown before the OS is fully installed and if so do you get any error messages first or do you hear a click and the notebook simply switches off, if it is the latter I would suspect overheating as the cause which can also affect the Ram.
Can I ask what type of XP disk it is that you are using as in is it a full retail Microsoft disk, a HP branded installation disk, another OEM brand name XP disk, a back up disk that you created yourself or a burned copy.
Run the HDDs diagnostics tool;
Make sure you select the tool that is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Depending on the program it'll create a bootable floppy or a bootable DVD/CD.
If the downloaded file is the .iso type use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn the .iso file to a DVD/CD disk depending on your OS (select "Write image file to disc" option) and make the disk bootable.
RE ImgBurn: please use the custom install and uncheck the attached foistware such as "Install Entrusted Toolbar etc"
