Yea, check the power rails.

Well you could try ChannelWell, but I won't recommend going any cheaper if you want a reliable powersupply. Most cheaper ones do not perform to their specs, hence a $40 "300watter" might be no better than a 250w in another computer.
What is the current PS in your computer? Check the ratings for the +12 +5 and +3.3 volt rails.
At the very least try to get a PS that has current ratings that exceed those on your current PS.
Check them in your BIOS...
If it drops below the specified rating, get a new PSU.

NOw I am having problem installing XP. i Tried booting it fr the cd and from there, I followed the instructions to install. However, after the first reboot by the setup, I went into this XP logo screen and it freezes over there. It is also quite dim looking. Can anyone help?

I am using a 4gig backup disk loaned to me temporary by my friend to install win XP. Is that the problem?
