|To get to Windows XP safe mode you hit the F8 Key.|
But if you are only seeing the manufacturer screen the F8 will not help, and this means that it is not a Windows XP problem it is a BIOs problem.
My only suggestion is to maybe go into the BIOs settings and load the default settings.
The final option that I can think of would be to flash the BIOs, but this can be VERY DANGEROUS, because if ANYTHING goes wrong your motherboard is toast.
