Using recovery console, find your most recent system restore point in %systemroot%\System Volume Information.

Back up your current registry hives (in \windows\system32\config\ ) by renaming them with .BAK extention, and then copy your old restore point hives into that directory. Good luck.

You'll have to insert the XP disk and boot to recovery console.

test the memory.  if you have more than one dimm remove one then the other.  or you can check it with this software http://www.memtest.org (create a bootable CD with the .iso and let it run thru at least 3 passes)
