Do you mean it won't pick the disc? If so, try
F10 it should also give you a boot menu if you don't see press any key to boot from cd... The other option is boot into BIOS and change your boot order. CD-ROM/DVD should be the 1st option.
It's trying to boot from a LAN or Network. You want it to boot from your hard drive.
Temporary Fix that you will have to change each time you turn on the laptop: Notice the screen when you press the power button, at some point it will tell you the keys to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and the key to hit to Change the Boot Order. Hit the key to Change the Boot Order and select the Hard Drive
Permanent Fix Notice the screen when it boots up and press the key that allows you to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Tab over to the area that allows you to set the Boot Sequence. Set your Hard Drive as the 1st Boot. The best boot sequence is: 1. CD/DvD Drive First (Just make sure nothing is in the drive when you boot) 2. Hard Drive 2nd
Hold down the F1 key, and power on the computer to get into the "Easy Setup". Change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first, save your settings, then restart the computer and have your Widows CD (or original system restore CD) in the CD player so it will read the CD before the information on the harddrive. If that don't work, replace the harddrive
