It could be a number of issues. Over heating, faulty memory, or other fault.
to improve the airflow in your latop use canned air to blow dust out form the fan and the holes that the laptop has.
Memory could be tested with a memory testing software.
this software is started from a cd or a floppy, it needs to be burned into a cd or written into a floppy
the computer needs to start the cd to run the test, to start from the cd, look at the screen when powering the computer up, it will say on some part of the screen to press Button to enter bios or boot menu, if you see boot menu press on that button when the message is shown and ones you are on the boot menu select the cd drive and press enter to start from it.
if you don't then you would need to edit the boot order in the bios
here's info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php
let me know how the memory test goes.
If the test is OK and no errors come up, then I would suggest that you do a fresh installation of windows to your computer from either the windows xp installation cd or the recovery discs that may have come with the laptop.
