Question about Computers & Internet
For some reason, your computer is overheating.
Sounds like a hardware problem, probably memory, power supply or your hard drive.
Try memory, first. Disconnect all cables. Touch metal to dispel static electricity. Remove the side cover by loosening the thumbscrew and pushing down on the cover and sliding out. Remove all memory modules. Insert one at a time and boot your computer to see if one module is bad. Your memory may just need to be reseated (removed and reinserted).
If still a problem, the next most common problem is the power supply. Replace it.
If still a problem, your hard drive may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

Well, you mean it's formatted and failed to reinstall XP? If so, it's clear that there's hardware issue. First change/replace the Ram. Try installing the Windows again and see if this helps or not. It's also possible that the Hard Disk Drive is bad, maybe physically or virtually (file system). Try with another Hard Disk Drive and check the status.
There are several possibilities for this, but in most cases, it's related to Ram and Hdd. The motherboard itself could also be the culprit, but for now, it's not blame it before you we confirm Ram and Hdd.
