This item was designed fro use with Windows NT4 or Win2000 so XP may have driver errors.
If you have upgraded XP to SP3 try updates from Windows for a fix, otherwise re instalation of the original OS may be needed.
Have you run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive errors? That is most likely to be the problem as if the drive is formatted to anything other than FAT32 you may be getting read errors.
Nice old machine. It will be a shame to have to ditch it.

Hi, try pressing the ESC button during boot up, this will allow you to start in safe mode, from where you can change your passworg, via the control panel. (Sometimes its the Del button on sertain machines)

You have to enter bios when computer boots. Not sure on Toshiba it might be F10 or delete or F1 or f12. If all else fails try them all till you get into the bios. Go to advance and go to boot options. You have to set CD rom as first boot option and hard drive 0 as second boot option. That should let you boot from a CD.
