That is a simple problem with a difficult answer. The bios has been infected by a virus that has placed its self in the chip. You need to flash the bios chip which is very diffcult on a laptop motherboard.
Take the motherboard completely out of the casing. Find the bios battery and remove it and keep it removed for about an hour, come back to it replace the battery and then try to reinstall xp home. If this continues you'll need to wipe the bios and reinstall it and that is more or less a waste of time and a pain in the backside.
