I cant install windows xp in my ibm m51 8141

You may have to Reformat your hard drive first. The current hard rive may have a bad operating system on it or one that is newer than XP. In some cases, when a computer has a more current operating system installed, it will not allow an older operating system to write over it. That is why I said, reformat the hard drive. Remember, hardware drivers are written for Windows 10 now, so old drivers may not be functional any longer.

I have an IBM ThinkCentre

Regarding settings not saving You mention that you removed the CMOS battery... You normally need a working CMOS battery [one that is not flat] for the computer to be able to remember changes to the BIOS settings. Regarding BIOS being in Spanish I would hope there would be a language option somewhere in the BIOS settings where you might be able to select English as the display language.

Ell optiplex 330,won't boot memory parity error, tried new bios battery, new ram stick, still won't boot,actually had two at same time the other I ran a advanced diagnostic test said hard driv

Is it a raid drive? If so you need to format it correctly. If not, check the bios setup and insure your uefi or ahci and legacy options are correct. Check the sata operation should be usb. Check that the boot sequence is in order. Give me more information and I'll help you
