If there is no data you care about on the Hard Disk Drive (HDD), as this method will over-write everything on the entire HDD and make it un-recoverable, have alook at this tutorial at the link below.

uh oh, the situation is different then what we've though. I asked my friend to help me with the re installation. I gave a brief explanation and he said I should first make sure the problem is in the hard drive so I did what he suggested and take out the hard drive and try to boot up the disks and see what happens... same thing. So it seems even if I do wipe the hard drive clean I'll still have the same problem. My friend said it might be the byos. So I'm really lost now
