Get your ethernet drivers from here, copy to a USB key/write to CD/etc, and run on your laptop.

When you boot up the notebook, press either F2 or Del, this will get you into the cmos settings, navigate to advanced cmos settings and normally at the top line is the boot sequence which will say HDD, press either up/down keys or + - keys to change to cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit. Insert you cd rom before the system boots into windows and the option prompting you to press enter to boot from cd will appear for 30seconds.

In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.
The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.
You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.
Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

for removing bios password you must have to remove cimos bettery for few mnuts but for doing this you have to open case of laptop
and it is not adviceable because your notebook is new one
so find any service station if yor laptop is in warranty period or you may lose your warranty
there isn't any other way to clear cmos without opening case of your laptop and remove cmos bettery
unless you will get cmos password but as u said you didn't put password in your laptop it might be possible that your notebook manufacture him self had put any password in cmose as a company policy
in that case also you must have to go to them

The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

Check the following:
1 make sure that the cdrom is okay. if not sure then try cleaning the cdrom lense which can be found in the cd tray,
2 make sure that the cd disc you are trying is a bootable one

To boot from CD, simply start your laptop and then press F12 immediately, and you will be given boot device options, with out having to get into your BIOS setup.
