ive just built a computer and ive just installed a network. the isp is aol, set up the router.

The problem is on the new comp the drivers for the old bt voyager100 modem was removed and now whenever i bring aol up the computer just resets.no explanation...except starts dumping physical memory?

anywayz back to point....ive tried system restore to put it back before the router was installed but i get the same problem.the random restart with aol..tried unistalling aol and then putting bk on...no look.so i was trying to reformat my hard drive as i wanna start it again anywayz...but normally id press f8 on any computer to bring up dos....but all i get is a screen saying which device to i want to boot from...im new to this sort of thing so please be patient with me...i built the computer by reading manuals very carefully and everything was fine until i got this aol recommended ruter..grrrrr
please help??
