Hi

I need to format my PC but I have e very disturbing problem.
when I restart my PC the PC canät read the DVD Disk. I don't know why. I tried many differents DVDs and three windowses lika 7 and vista. I even tryed the boost settings and none did work. Am gonna kill myself. I just bought this PC for 1 month ago.

Thanx for any usefull help !

Do you mean that you can't read the DVD from within windows, or that it doesn't boot from it at startup?

Is the BIOS set to boot from the dvd first?

^Exactly what I was thinking^
You need to go into BIOS by holding either delete or F2 (it should tell you what key to press on one of the first splash screens that comes up) and find an option to set boot order. Change it so that the DVD drive is first in the list, save changes, and re-boot.

1. Does your BIOS see the DVD ?
2. What's the Boot priority order ?
3. Does the DVD work in another machine ?

When the PC starts up with the old windows which i have within it right now, It can read the DVD who has the windows in it. But when I restart the PC It can't read it at all.

Have you EVER been able to boot from a CD/DVD on this computer? Some SATA optical drives are not bootable...
