the processor doesn't make noise unless its burning...it sounds like a RAM issue. Try taking out the ram and putting it back in. If you have to take one out and try again.

Hmm.. seems like RAM would keep it from booting up to XP... usually does that.
Are your temps good? Sounds like it may be an overheating issue.
