Try deleting the "upper and lower filters" from registry to see if this will help
To follow this step, please go to start, then run....
Inside the run box, please type in the box - regedit.
Once it comes up with the window, go to..
SYSTEM\ on the +
CurrentControlSet\ on the +
Control\Class\ on the +
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} ...once you find this registry, click on the whole folder...
Then on the right side, look for upper and lower filters. Once you find it, right click then choose delete. Close all windows then restart your computer. Then try the cds again to see if this time it will work now,. trying to boot from the windows cd will indicate that it's not windows issue.
Try checking first if the BIOS is set to start up from the DVD drive. If it is, then try another bootable disk that you can try. If it will still not boot from it, then it's the DVD drive that's not working.

If it's able to boot from another bootable DVD then it's your windows disk. Try getting another windows disk.

At this point, you can revert back to the stone aged floppy drive to boot up. Try to obtain a boot-able floppy disc that will allow you to boot the pc with cd driver. You can even go back to WIN-ME edition floppy boot disc. I can send along a copy if you like.
