You will have to get into BIOS by pressing either F2 or F8 or F11 (depending on your motherboard) as soon as you power on the PC. Most likely your first boot device is your CD-ROM. Change the first boot device to Hard Disk and see if this helps. Also ensure that there are no CD's in the CD tray.

Try this and let me know how it goes...

Hi 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer. NOTE: This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs. If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM. This may help. Good Luck
