Is the power supply properly connected? Try resetting the ram and bios by removing the ram chips,and then the button battery from the motherboard. Wait a few minutes, reinstall everything and try booting up.
Mamum23 if you install windows xp pro and the problem persist it could be a few reason like:
1. Have a hardware that is interfering with the boot (printer, external HD, etc)
2. Could be the hard drive that is having problems in a few sectors (blocks) and you may need a new HD.
3. Could be the modemboard slots but that could be really rare.
If I was you I made the troubleshoot 1 and then 2.
Sounds more like an overheating problem.
I'll suggest to clean all the fans from dust and lint.
You may also need to apply a fresh heat release compound on the processor.
You may need professional help for this, but this will solve your problem.

If you have your operating system disc. Then insert it in the cd drive and start up. You may have to change your BIOS to have it start from the CD drive. Allow your cd to run for a few minutes. Eventually it will stop and ask you if you want to load the operating system or if you want to repair it. Choose repair. That will fix your problem and allow you to get into Windows.
