Plz check your memory with memtest. It can be downloaded from http://www.memtest.org/download/4.10/memtest86+-4.10.iso.zip .
Unzip the downloaded file and burn the ISO file to a CD and boot your system from the CD. It will check the memory of your system and it will indicate any error replace the memory.
Also check your memory slot is clean .. you can clean your system memory slot using a anti-static brush (you can use a tooth brush if anti-static is not available) and IPA

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.
