    Press the reset button?

    It would kind of help if you told us what operating system we are talking about here. Is it DOS, Linux, Windows 98, Windows XP, Solaris, Plan 9, QNX, whatever?

    It would be easiest to simply put in whatever OS you are wanting to load, and restart the computer. Go into your BIOS and set your CD-Rom as your first boot. Then save and exit, once restarting it should boot from CD, from there you can format and reinstall.

    BTW
