SOURCE: Can't install WINDOWS.
WindowsXP does not natively support SATA drives. The install disc doesn't contain any SATA drivers for these devices. You can retrieve the correct driver HERE, and slipstream the driver into your windows disc. For slipstreaming tutorials and software, go HERE.

SOURCE: bad dell hard drive
as long as you have the windows COA code on the back of the computer (certificate of Authenticity) you can just find a good copy of XP Pro, and install it on your machine. When done, you can run the resorce CD and install the drivers.
If you do not have the Operating System disk, you have to find another disk, or contact Dell to get a new one sent to you.
The key is that you have the code on the back of the computer (or top, or side, or wherever.)

Slow computers are sometimes due to bad hard drives. Run a hard drive diagnostic test on your computer to make sure the hard drive isn't bad. Download this hard drive diagnostic from Western Digital: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=612&sid=3&lang=en
Also, make sure you have enough RAM to support your growing number of installed programs. Download and run this system scanner to check if you can add more ram to your PC:
