    boot XP in safe mode, or boot of your XP CD. run CHDSK on your CD drive. Your registry is probably corrupt.
    Then once you can boot, run Crap Cleaner (CCleaner) frequently and use it's regsitry repair tools.

    Do not rule out bad ram. Run memtest 86+ from a floppy or CD for at least 7 passes.
