Dear i think you didnt get option to select the first boot device. So please try this one.
1>restart your laptop and press F12 OR F10 KEY and this will show you the bootable device in the list than selecte the dvd rom and keep inserted the bootable CD ok. i tell you F12 OR F10 mean diffrent bios has different setting so one of it will definately work ok.

How to remove hard disk password from PC?

That is two different things.

A BIOS Password makes you enter a password to boot the machine up. To get rid of this you need to google
make model remove bios password
This requires shorting two pins on the motherboard.

A Hard Disk Password is something different. The requires a password to access files on the hard drive, but not the operating system. To defeat that, you need to reformat and reinstall Windows.

Password for acer aspire s3 series model ms2346

Is this a question? What kind of password? Windows Administrative or BIOS password? Is the computer yours or are you trying to access something that isn't yours?

If it has a bios password, it needs to be reset or disabled by the person that set it, or by taking apart the computer and finding either the BIOS battery or jumper to switch it off to reset the bios back to factory conditions.

If the password is administrative for Windows then the only option(if you don't know it) is to reformat the computer to a new version of Windows. There are alternatives around the password but it involves downloading programs and running them from a CD to gain access to them and I'd rather not divulge such information until I understand that this is your computer.

How to access the bios i want to reformat my computer. problem is my computer keep restating and getting this safemode screen

It depends on what type of motherboard you have. For some it is F2, for others its the Del key and then for others its the F10 key. Hint: you need to have a quick eye. When you boot up your computer, usually there will be a screen that will show you the specification of your computer. The components that the BIOS has detected, and down below is the portion which tells what key needs to be pressed to be able to access the BIOS. You have to be fast or else you need to repeat the process again.

My n205 says it cannot access hard drive (probably the result of a virus) so I think I need to reformat the drive, or look for appropriate solution

I would not assume that the drive is corrupted by a virus. Viruses generally don't cause the machine to not be able to find the hard drive (they's just not very common). If your BIOS supports a hard drive diagnostic I would first use that to check that the BIOS is seeing the drive, and that the drive doesn't have errors (as you don't have to get into the operating system). However, if you decide to reformat you can try it, but if the drive is having physical problems the install probably will not execute.

If the machine says it cannot access the hard drive, and the BIOS cannot see the drive, it is highly likely not a virus but a failed hard drive and you won't be able to reformat.

Hope that is helpful.

Computer has a virus. Want to format drive and reintall windows but when I try to read cd off of desktop the pointer becomes busy and sort of freezes any operation.

If you plan to reformat the hdd, just boot the unit off the cd. you may have to go into the BIOS setup and change the boot order so that it accesses the cdrom first. In most HP systems you can access the BIOS setup by hitting f10 key during the boot stage.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS

When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios
