    The Problem is SOLVED!!!! I don't know if it was removing the battery and reseting the cmos, or cleaning the memory stick. Becouse I did both at the same time, however it cured the problem. I want to Thank all of you for your help.

    BTW--a very nice upgrade to your system would be to purchase another stick of memory--either 256 or 512 depending on your budget. Its tough to run XP on just 256K ESPECIALLY with onboard video.
