Try removing and cleaning your memory using a pencil eraser. Rub the eraser across the gold pins of the memory to make them shiny. Additionally you can use a soft brush to clean the memory slots. When re inserting the memory, pls make sure that they go in with a positive click.
If the above is not corrective, you may need to replace your memory.
In some instances, you may need to re partition and reformat the entire hard drive prior to installing XP SP2.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
