INSPIRON8600 WONT BOOT TO XP

I have a inspiron 8600 with xp home and 40 GB hd 512 mb ram It also has the parallel ans serial conectors on back. It goes through the bios then it wont boot to the operating system. I have tried the 32 bit diagnostics and the all come back as passing. I have also tried pressing F8 to get to safe mode and that does not even come up. I can only access the boot menu F12 ans setup F when finished going through the bios the screen goes gray however the diagnostics show  full video colors ect. I have tried to boot from an xp pro Sp2 Disk and all it does is start by inspecting hardware configuration then nothing. Please any suggestions would be appreciated
