Default acer aspire 3003wlci wont boot into safemode

I'm fixing my friend's acer aspire 3003wlci

What I've Tried
- Booting into safemode

Problems
- Won't boot into safemode
-- safe mode loads up all the codes and stuff like it would normally. You know, the black screen and grey font. THen the computer would just reboot; I tried to go to safemode again and it becomes an endless hoop that never boots into safemode.
- Computer boots normally to Windows XP but doesn't boot into safemode
- When the computer boots into Windows XP it is just very sluggish and freezes up

I find it really weird that it would be able to successfully boot to Windows XP normally and can't do a simple task of booting into safemode. I set the BIOS Boot Order to CD/DVD first so tomorrow I will be using the Windows XP disc to repair it. But other than that, is there anything else I could do?

Can a Windows XP PRo disc fix a Windows XP home?
