You said you were in the bios, did it cut out while you were in there?

You should try a live cd like knoppix and see if the same happens.
If it does it may be a heat related issue or motherboard failure as the graphics are integrated on the motherboard.
Try cleaning the air vents with canned air.

There is the possibility that corruption of files has taken place on the hard drive

thx sparkmaker i tried the the knoppix cd,but even if its says in the bios to boot from the cd rom first,it still goes through and boots to xp.I think the cd rom might be busted as well.it really baffles me as the machine still looks brand new.

if it was running fine recently, you can also try a system restore to a previous date.
or try updating the video driver
