bios upgade is a "risk" task, so only use manufacturer's official bios upgrade. If you cannot get official one from manufactur's web site, forget about upgrade.

It maynot be bios problem, use original XP (not XP with SP2) will give you better luck

have you test memory use memtest86 and checked HDD use manufatcurer's diagnostic software

Can you give us as much information as possible both about the computers specification and the type of problems it has?
