Check the following :
Display Driver installed properly, try to update latest driver from net.
Update XP Home.
If problem persist, then change RAM.

Did the error begin after downloading a MS update on this customers machine?  

If yes, try rebooting and pressing F8 during the initial startup, to start in Safe Mode with a command prompt then try a System Restore, to get you up and running.

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Reference:   http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=304449

If unsuccessful you could try changing the RAM, as already suggested by BMKESHAV ... if there is more than one RAM module (stick), one option would be to remove all but one RAM stick and try a reboot.
