    Ok i found out the problem fix with my msi motherboard.In the bios there are 2 options "fail safe load" or "high specs mode".you load in the fail safe mode,save and reboot.After it has rebooted restart pc,and go back into bios.Do it back to all your settings,and save.Now when you restart it does,and just dosnt hang.So obvious a bug in there somewhere.But problem solved.

HP xw4400 workstation wont boot/start if RAM are inserted.

If you are increasing the RAM from 1Gb to 2Gb then the RAM maybe incompatible. Try using a RAM module as the original make and speed.
Try installing one RAM module at a time to see if one of the RAM modules is faulty.
Removing the RAM will give a POST error code of no RAM or faulty RAM.

PC does not boots / does not start

Since your system reboots even if you stay in the Bios setup the problem with your system might be because of heating up of the proceesor, which might be caused if the fan CPU fan is rotating slowly or is not rotating at all. If the fan is rotating slowly change the cpu fan and try to reinstall XP

No display on computer

First thing is do you have a beep when the system boots? Sounds like you may have a BIOS issue I would start there........your RAM and processor are more than likely NOT the problem
