That's a BIOS message not a setup message. What does it say aside from that? Do you have the DVD drive set as a bootable device in the BIOS (that would be the F2 option).

Are you saying that your keyboard is not working? and you cannot enter bios or do anything?

Depending on your computer you may need to use a PS/2 keyboard to get into your bios (likely if you have an older PC) and select your DVD drive as a boot device above your hard drive. PS/2 keyboards had a round purple connector at the end, rather than a USB connector; if you have replaced your keyboard at some point then try the old one (or an old one with the ps2 connector).
