Computer wont boot?

Yesterday I was on facebook, gmail, etc.. when this window popped up saying that my computer was locked by the FBI and I had to pay a fine of $200. It completely locked up my computer. Ive seen this before, and I knew it was a virus so I help the power button down on my laptop and shut it off.
When I tried to start it up, it showed the ACER screen, saying to push f2 for settings or whatever, then the screen goes blank with only a little blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner like its waiting for me to type something..
Itll stay like that until my laptop dies. Ive read a few posts on here about similar problems and all their suggestions have done nothing.
My hard drive is still working because I plugged it into my brothers computer and it popped right up. Im not really sure where to go from here.
Thanks for your help!
