My computer will not load anywhere past a black screen with a blinking underscore

  1. As I said in the title, it will not load anywhere past this. I turn it on, it goes to the boot screen and gives me the option of F2 (Setup) and F12 (Change Boot Order). I have experimented with these but to no avail. I switched around the order of the boot loading for the CDROM and the HD etc. but it isn't doing anything. I am absolutely desperate to get it working again because it's currently holidays and I have nothing else to do. I was planning to do my assignments on it also. Please help me? :)

    It is unclear that is why I am asking, when you changed the boot order, did you tried to boot the system from bootable CD? or any other bootable media e.g. USB etc.
