The PC recognized the Harddrive and DVD Drive. I setup to boot from DVD first, but when I turn it on, it booted directly from Harddrive and went direct to window. Please help.

Thanks!!

If it came from Dell with the system, carefully clean the CD with a dab of toothpaste and some soft lint cloth and NOT a wood-based kitchen paper! Another possibility is the laser needs a clean,
