Award Bios
Intel Pentuim 3 1000MHZ prcessor
Cpu cooler fan and case fan

and the rest is common stuff

Everytime i try to boot it and install win XP on it, it hungs up during the setup, sometimes it doesnt even get past the loading dmi pool data ,

Try more conservative settings in BIOS.
Also, try underclocking your PIII just for testing purposes.
Your RAM could be faulty, too. Try using your PC with just one of those two modules at a time.

if win95/98/Me installs and NT/2000/XP does not, your memory is the problem in 99 of 100 cases...
