That type of error is typical of a system with faulty or incompatible ram. Download memtest86 and run if on the XP machine from a bootfloppy. If you get any errors the ram is bad.

"i have changed my RAM to 256MB"

How much did you have before the change? And which OS were you running? 256MB isn't enough RAM to run WinXP decently. You should have at least 512MB, more would be better.

And look up the type of RAM your motherboard supports.
