Welcome to Geeks to Go, jbiggz.

If all you can get to is the BIOS screen then more than likely you either do not have a operating system on the computer or the hard drive is not reading anything. If you keep hitting the "Delete" key while the computer is booting up, can you get into the BIOS to see what you have there? use the arrow keys for navigation and the enter key to get into the different windows. You might want to set the computer to boot first off the cdrom drive and use a windows CD in the cdrom drive to see if the computrer will boot up and install windows. Just hit the ESC key to get out of the BIOS.

We need more information as to what your doing before going any further.

Yes, reinstalling would be a good option in my opinion. You could use keyfinder to find the original activtion key.
