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?

Yes go through Osiris's guide with that machine and see if he has Malware related issue's or it could be that it's just a hunk of Garbahg'e

To answer your question about the prodisc and xp repair

No it cant be fixed with a pro cd. to fix windows the CD has to be the same as whats on the computer meaning an xp home cd to fix xp home and a pro cd to fix xp pro and also an Media Center Edition CD to fix xp media center edition.

You said you were going to try and do a repair with the WinXP cd.. how did that go?

The Osiris Guide was offered as what to do after you get it booting..
