Computer won't upgrade from Win95 to XP Home anymore

Trying to fix my sister's computer I had to crash the hard drive on it again for cause it wouldn't start up.
(wish I came here when that happened) I crashed it and recovered it to Win95 using the recovery disc that came with it. Problem is I don't have the PIN to unlock it. So I used to solve that problem by simply wiping the hard drive clean then installing WinXP. Now the PC won't let me do that anymore. I put in those 6 disc (the ones to get the computer to read the Upgrade disc) when it ask for me to throw in the 6th one the computer just stops and nothing happens. I even left it on for 36 hours and still nothing but "please wait..." on the screen. I was wondering is there any way to fix this or should I just get a new computer cause this one is really old.
Its a Sony VIAO it was bought back in 1996. Thats as much as I know about the Computer specs. I'll try to find out more.
P.S.: I tried calling the company for the serial number to the VIAO but they gave me nothing.
