Was the computer working before you tried installing XP?

Are the disks burnt or are they store bought?

there was xp installed from the factory, but it got viruses, trying to get rid of them by reformatting, and yes 3 of them are burnt but the sp0 disk is an oem disk that came from factory (an old dell disk whioch has worked on many other systems)
