If you have an XP install disk, or the system recovery disk that comes with the computer, you can do a repair install.
Look in this forum, fourth post from the top, for the directions.
Repair does not reformat the drive, or erase your personal files. But it will make the computer work again.
After you get it working, back up all your personal files, in case of future problems.

it goes straight into system menu
There are hundreds of menus in Xp, none are referred to as "system menu" Can you explain what you see in that menu referred to?

If by chance it is the Advanced Startup Menu, the cursor keys are the method of navigation.
