All I can think is that there is a problem with the bios, and if you say you are having trouble installing XP Pro, then I would recommend you F-Disk & format your hard-drive completely, then reinstall windows from scratch as there could be some conflict with files on your existing operating system. If all else fails, return your machine to the manufacturer if it is still under warranty

Is your PC XP compliant ?

To shut it off just hold the start button in for a few seconds.
