U have got a person with no hands, mouth or anything to take. First of all, u have to have a CDROM or DVDROM. Now coming to the point, first format the USB Drive (pendrive) and copy the system start up files in it. U can do it on other computer by the following steps:
1) FORMAT the drive.
2) go to DOS mode, then type
COPY COMMAND.COM D: (D: means the drive letter of the Drive)
COPY FORMAT.COM D:
3) for the bios setup... Press the F2 Key or DEL Whatever is ur bios activation key. (ESC/F1/F10/F12) 4) in the bios, go to the boot priority section. 5) in the first boot device, put the USB drive. Press F10 to save and exit. also u may just plug the USB drive in the port and the system will automatically boot from there.
6) when the system starts, it will enter the command mode. enter the following Command, FORMAT C: and press ENTER and ur job should be done. Also next time u install antivirus right after the installation of OS, before any program else there is always chance of virus infection. There are many free antiviruses such as Avira, AVG, McAfee etc...

Usually, the only setting in BIOS you have to change is the boot order, so you can start from cd.
As for hanging, it might be dust. Yes, it does tend to overheat due to acumulating dust in the cpu fan.
Also, before you format, make sure you have all the drivers for you hardware and get the latest updates for your operating system, because you SHOULD NOT go online BEFORE installing the drivers, updates and the antivirus, in that order. I know it is a bugger, but reboot everytime the computer asks you to.
If you need more detailed explaining, post a comment. Meanwhile, I´ll research about the board.
