Are you, by chance, Guest331 from chat?
Are there files on this machine that you need to recover?

If you have a floppy drive, we might get past this pretty easily.

When you boot with disk 1, what options, if any, are you given? Or does it simply ask for you to feed it the next disk?
Are all of the cd's clean and in good shape?
Do you have access to a WinXP retail installation cd? (friend or family?)

all the cds are new and in good shape,
no to the winxp retail installation cd

There are several things that might be causing the machine to shut down. (it IS shutting down, right? Not restarting?) One could be heat...the machine is working pretty hard when this happens. Maybe prop the back of the machine up on a book or something to increase the airflow under the machine.
Let's also set the BIOS to the Fail Safe Default. Restart the machine and press the F2 ky during the boot sequence to enter setup. Look at all the instructions in the BIOS screen...there should be a key you can press to set the BIOS to default (Or Fail Safe...). Press that key and then press F10 to save the settings. Exit BIOS and restart with disk one in the drive.
If heat may be the issue, leave the machine off for about 30 minutes before starting the recovery to allow the heat to dissipate from the case.
Let me know if this helps...

You might look at investing in a Laptop Cooler for your machine. They really do help.
Sooo...are you "good to go" or can we offer further assistance?
