Clear BIOS/CMOS, this can either be done by way of the clear BIOS/CMOS jumper or you can remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about a minute and then reintall it in it's correct orientation. This will set your computer to factory defaults. Will then need to enter the BIOS/CMOS by hitting the delete key during POST procedure to set the date and time for example.
All the best.

if it comes with windows 7 or vista you can try and tap f8 until you get a boot menu and there should be an option to repair your computer, if it's windows xp you're kinda screwed unless you can access the recovery partition.
