I would start with B, reinstall drivers and DVD decoding software. If that doesn't do the trick then it's definitely C. Failed DVD with CD capability is a common problem.

Hello, Follow the instruction:
Press power button and enter BIOS menu. (Bios menu: while PC make sound beep press button "delete")
You can see there BIOS menu. (Be carefully, don`t change anything if you can`t understand something) You have to find there general settings and in general settings you will see boot button.
There will be many boot buttons, but your settings must be that:
First boot: FDD (do not change it)
Second boot: HDD (do not change it)
Third boot: CDROM (if it is not, change it to CDROM or DVD/CDROM)
