Windows 98SE problem.

My friend donated his old Compaq desktop with Windows 98 SE to me. It boots to the Compaq screen and while there flashes two small rectangles on the left of the screen(one after the other,) then one large rectangle on the right of the screen. Then the screen goes black with a prompt, only responding to ctrl+alt+del which restarts the boot.
I can get to the BIOS screen by pressing f10 at start, but I don't understand how to reset the memory from there if its even possible.
Tried several downloaded boot disks(floppy) but nothing seems to work.
I could care less if all the information on the computer is deleted.
