string code = textBox3.Text;

            XElement xelement = XElement.Load(@"C:\books.xml");

            if (code == "7582")
            {
                var sCode = from nm in xelement.Elements("book")
                            where (string)nm.Element("code") == "7582"
                            select nm;
                foreach (XElement xEle in sCode)
                    MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToString(xEle), "Success");
            }
           
            else
            {
                if (code == "7043")
                {
                    var sCode = from nm in xelement.Elements("book")
                                where (string)nm.Element("code") == "7043"
                                select nm;
                    foreach (XElement xEle in sCode)
                        MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToString(xEle), "Success");
                }

                else
                {
                    if (code == "")
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show("Enter a Valid Code", "Error");
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show("Not Found", "Error");

You can combine the two "if (code == ...) blocks together and use your code variable in place of the hard coded value.

            if (code == "7582" || code == "7043")
            {
                var sCode = from nm in xelement.Elements("book")
                            where (string)nm.Element("code") == code
                            select nm;
                foreach (XElement xEle in sCode)
                    MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToString(xEle), "Success");
            }
