its simple whats wrong.

check motherboard manual

then tap the butten to choice what to boot when you turn pc on. e.g. on my pc its esc key


then hit the dvd drive and it will boot from it.


have you checked that dvd drive hasnt died?

(there might be a setting in your bios that say's something like "try other boot devices"

one possibility is because the optic become weak so it rather picky with the disk.... (some can some cannot)

glad it solved....
