The computer was in use when the display cut out. The monitor is fine and the computer turns on but has no display on the monitor

I presume that you tried the monitor on another system to verify function. Try restart after 2 min power down and disconnect and try again, then take another "known good" monitor and try that. If both monitors give no image, video output is suspect. Many motherboards have the video output as part of the board itself, cost prohibitive to replace motherboard.
Sometimes you can plug in a PCI video card and bypass system video.

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

System hangs

scan your system with antivirus maybe your computer is infected with virus.

If this not work, try examine the memory, remove clean and fix it back and start the computer.
if still thesame;
examine trhe mainboard maybe some part of it overheating.
if non of those, then remove newly install hardware and software
id still theamse happen, i recommend you to reinstall your windows to correct all the errors.
It pretty if you reformat it before installing the new windows.

Note: reformatting and reinstalling could remove the important files, make backup before proceeding.
