Can you get any error log message?

Try in the run command box: sfc \scannow with your XP disk in the drive.

I have had the same problem with XP Pro. I spoke to a M$ engineer and he said that if everything locks up so you can't even do ctrl/alt/del then it points to a hard ware problem. I think I narrowed my problem down to the KT133a chipset on my mobo but haven't been able to reslove it so have gone back to W98SE for now until I can upgrade.

Update your drivers, Bios, etc...

Or you could try checking system heat, is it getting too hot?
