I have a PC with windows xp that every night, it boots up by itself at aroudn 10 pm.
I'm assuming it's something in the bios, but is there anywhere else in windows I need to check?

Yes it is a feature in the BIOs under Auto Power-On.

Depending on your Dell model/BIOS but it should be on page 2 of your BIOS.
