Try removing 1/2 the memory, see if it boots. If not swap memory and try again.

I found an answer on the net. The person told me to unplug the computer and then hold in the start button for 45 seconds. Then hold the button in and plug the computer back in. I do not know what this does but it worked. The computer booted up with no problems and I reloaded xp.

Was the date and time correct after it booted? If not then the CMOS battery (quarter size) in the computer is dead and needs to be replaced.

It's a CR2032 and is easy top replace.

 

Power down, remove power cord.

Open case, remove old battery, install new.

Connect power cord and boot up.

Set date and time
