There is no prompt that tells you to start clicking F8. That's why you have to start clicking it as soon as you power up the computer. Are you saying that F8 just won't work? Can you access your BIOS? As soon as you power on the computer what happens if you start clicking F2 or F12 (the usual ways to access setup?)

If you can access the BIOS you might be able to change the boot order to boot from the CD/DVD drive as the first option. Then you could insert the XP install disk and boot fom it.
