I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck
This happened to me once on my other computer, I don't know what caused it, maybe service pack 2 that I installed but I don't know. Anyway i just rebooted and then the themes were back and I could change it again.
It is hard to suggest a simple solution.
If the reinstallation of WinXP went smooth and problems are back again....the problem might be in the hardware.
Download the latest drivers for your hardware and install them, after you install WinXP. Run an antivirus program that upto date do a complete system scan. I would recommend Trend Micro's PC-Cillin or Mc Afee antivirus.
I suggest you to check your memory modules.
I f you have two RAM modules: pick one out and start the system. Now if there is no problem. The RAM in your hand is faulty.
Otherwise reinsert the RAM in your hand and pick the other one out. Now start the system.
If it works well replace RAM in your hand.
Seocnd thing is your hard disk.
If you can take out and put your hard disk in a different system and reinstall windows if it fails to start. And see if the problem persists. If so, change your hard disk.
Next thing is the motherboard.
This is a tedious job, I do not encourrage to do this. carefully inspect the motherboard for leaking capacitors. If there is any take it for warranty service (if applicable) or you can ask some one to change the capacitors.
Check the power supply module(SMPS)
Make sure all connctions are intact and no loose connction exists. (This may be threat to the circuits). If you can arrange a spare SMPS, try connecting that.
Check your power cables. If you have spare cables try changing that. Some cable are low quality and may get short & spark.
