When you computer restarts you should eventually see the words "Press
Any Key to enter Setup". If you do not see these words and it goes to
the screen that gives you the error message, you will have to change
your boot priority in your bios settings.
Changing boot device priority: A.
When you see you’re the first screen, the boot screen, press delete a
few times until your computer beeps. Pressing the delete key will bring
your computer up into the bios settings. The key you need to press may
differ from computer to computer. If the delete key doesn't work for
you, contact your computer manufacturer and ask them what key you need
to press to get into bios.
B. After you are in your bios
settings you will need to navigate to your boot settings. Depending on
which type and version of BIOS you have, this process may be different.
Either way, there should be a section called Boot or Boot Priority.
Navigate to that and make sure that your CD-ROM has top or first
priority. After you have don't that, save and exit (press F10).

also how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased or if using XP During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computerAdvanced Boot Options screen appears.

I received an IBM laptop with same issue a few months back. The error message due to the drained out CMOS RTC (coin-cell battery), which retains and other BIOS settings. The system is OK and all you have to do is to get the CMOS/RTC battery replaced by the a professional. Good Luck! CreativeTECH

You can do this by changing the BOOT Priority in your BIOS settings.
To get into BIOS:-
When you first turn the system on, you get what they call a POST screen (normally has the laptop logo or enegy star monitor rating), at the bottom of the screen, it should give you an option or two (i.e. F1-Boot Options, F2-Setup (also called BIOS). Different systems use different keys to enter the BIOS (or SETUP), this is usually F2 or Delete.
Once you are in the BIOS, just have a browse for BOOT OPTIONS or BOOT PRIORITY, and change the value of FIRST BOOT to CD-ROM.
Save these new settings to CMOS and exit. The system will now reboot, and this should solve the problem
