Put your XP CD in, restart and press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD" - follow the options as if you were going to install XP fresh, whe n it gets to Repair Current Installation, do so.

Run a memory test click here.

Find out the manufacturer of the hard-disk and get some diagnostic software from their site - this ought to tell you what drives are installed click here.
