Answers :

You need a repairer to look at it cos it is not a software problem.its hard ware
If you can access the bios settings,f2 or f10,or whitchever one does that on your model go to the boot section using the arrow keys and move your cd drive to the top of the list,scroll to it with the arrow keys then use the u and d letters on the keyboard to move it up or down ,or some mdls. its the f5 and f6 buttons ,make sure to save and exit or the changes wont stay ,f12 or f10 might give you a one time boot option if it does pick the cd-rom with the disk in and hopefully it will boot,if none of this works,test your disk on another computer,it may have gotten damaged,let me know what happens,and if your able to access the bios" aloha from maui"todd0708
