Unless you need this computer, XP is soon dead. I would not invest in hardware to get XP going. Unless the computer is less than 2 years old and can run at least Windows 7, it is time for a new machine with a new (64-bit) operating system.

It would appear you have to replace memory. Still, I suggest now is as good a time as any to move on.
