Your install medium (CD) or the CDROM drive is bad. Replace the CDROM / DVDROM and try again, or do both, get a different CD and different drive and give it another go.

I think you just need to install the win again.

I agree. Your CD data has either become corrupt or your CD drive is broken, if other CD's work then the problem is the XP boot CD. You can download a XP standard boot disc from here Bootdisk.Com

Once downloaded just burn to disc using a something like nero or Active ISO burner Active@ ISO Burner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Make sure your BIOS is set to the correct hard drive mode (probably IDE)

Stick it into your PC and install XP again, you will need to activate with your COA code.

Hope this helps
