"Deep Freeze" broken, and laptop is dead,

Here's a brief description of the problem I'm having. In order to play a Network game, I had to "Downgrade" the games version. By doing so I ran the risk of breaking it, so I thought I'd protect my working version by Installing a program called "Deep Freeze v5.70". I've used it before, and it's quite effective.

After installing and rebooting, everything seemed to be working fine. Any adjustments I made to the filing system were restored on reboot and my laptop was unbreakable. However, during my attempted "downgrade" in the protected mode, the installation stuffed up, and I chose to reboot and try again. This time however, it didn't boot. In fact, it it just showed a flashing cursor on the top left and that's it.

The only thing I can access now is the BIOS. Placing a boot CD in the Drive does nothing. It does not load to the point where I can choose safe mode or anything. On the plus side, I seem to have broken the unbreakable Deep Freeze program.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire WLMI. Don't have the exact specs with me here, but I can get them if required.
This one has me really stumped. Any help?
