Sorry for your troubles. Do you know which virus it was, as any information like this would help. Also, are you getting any error messages in the boot up sequence? What operating system are you using?
To begin with, you will need to boot up from your operating system cd or from a boot cd. Your BIOS should be set to boot first from cd and if you have your cd in the drawer, it will ask you to hit any key to boot from cd. If the bios is not set to boot up first from cd, interrupt your bootup sequence with the appropriate key (could be the del key but it will tell you at the bottom of your screen) to get to the bios and change the bootup sequence so your computer will boot up first from cd. You may also be given the option to hit a key (might be the F2 key) during the booting sequence which will put you into a boot menu where you can simply choose the cd as the means for booting up the computer.
See if you can get into the computer this way.
Try that to begin with and let me know if you can get beyond this loop problem.
