Windows XP Pro Hard Drive Problems

Hi When I boot up my XP machine alls fine until I get to the login screen( I don't have a password) so I click on my name and a Windows box appears saying Windows need to be authenticated would you like to do this now, 'Yes/No' I click on Yes then another box pops up saying Windows has already been authenticated, click OK then its back to the login screen and the same thing is repeated constantly.

I still have my original copy of XP so thought I could sort this by doing a clean install but I cannot get access to boot menu or command prompt as the F8 key doesn't work and I've tried changing the boot sequence for computer to boot from CD-Rom with XP disk(using F11)but that doesn't seem to work either so I'm just in a constant loop with this problem I hope someone can give me some advice.
