Get the windows CD and try installing windows afresh on the computer. There should be instructions with the laptop on how to do it on a dell computer.

hi has it still got the original spec in particular the 128mb of ram?if so you could be out of memory,i would say the minimum to run xp sp2 would be 512mb(even 256mb would not be ideal)also you may want to consider a fresh install of windows,just suggestion others more in the know may advise other routes
