    Hmm, have you tried holding the F12 key while booting, it should give you a boot menu where you can choose to boot from the CD rom.

    Note : If holding down the F12 key dosen't work, try Tapping the F12 at boot up.

    Good luck

    What is on the CD? Have you tried it with another computer to see if maybe the CD is defective?

    Get the CD checked with another computer. I think there's something wrong with the CD. If the CD works properly somewhere else, then the problem is with your optical drive.
