how do you re-install winXP when its installed on the system rather than with the disc ? ?

You make a recovery disk when you first get it, and they usually have a recovery partition.

make and model of pc AB.

As Mac points out,normally you will have a hidden partition with the recovery/restore program.
Try tapping F11 or F10 on startup.

If you have to re-format your computer and none of the above work,You can borrow a Windows Genuine XP disc from a friend or neighbor and use that,You will then need to add the keycode that you have on your OEM on the side of your computer,And in some cases you will need to phone Microsoft to have it verified.
