if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

First, if you can run hard disk drive diagnostics, because many times a windows failure is based on the Hard Drive failing. If the Hard drive checks out, since you cannot access the Windows enviroment, you'll likely be re-installing Windows and loading drivers again. I hope your data is already backed up, otherwise it may be gone
