Default Weird

My friends computer he bought along with a windows XP bootup disc XP pro and his computer starts up and he clicks his account and neither the startup menu or any of his icons. He tried the bootup disc and it just gives him an error code.

He should try and put on a different OS and see if that works. If not, then it's the actual pc.
