need help with reinstallation

Hi all

I am trying to reinstall vista on a acer aspire laptop. The machine has
been badly infected with an unknown virus/ infection. The virus doesn't
scan

I think that i might need to flash my bios. I can't change the bios
setting to boot to cd. In other words i can't change anything in my bios
at all it won't let me arrow down of the item on the top line. I think
it is the virus because the behaviour is the same.

when i try to load the os on the machine it does the ramdisk thing beep
the whole way. Then places something on the screen then starts again.

the machines keyboard doesn't work so i am using a psp keyboard with no
problems there. So it is panic beeping while it is trying to install the
os.

i have wiped the hard drive with a partition disk. so there isn't any
operating system.

I have downloaded the bios off acer website but i am a little unsure
how to prepare the disk to make it bootable.

thanks for your help
