It reads DVD without problems
but if I insert CD - system can't see that
tried 2 bios updates BX32 and B375 but it didn't helped
OS -Windows XP with SP2 but it isn't OS matter because System can't boot from bootable CD
Hardware is properly detected by bios
but when i insert bootable CD inside it doesn't detect it either

You can check your BIOS at startup. Right after the Beep press F2. sometimes it's a different key depending on the mobo. Change the boot order so your CD or DVD device is read before the hard drive. That way you can put in your linux boot disc, (or M$ Windoze)and boot from that disc. If there is an error there will be a series of beeps. Those different beeps mean different things, check your motherboard manual onlineif you don't have a manual to see what's not detecting. Either graphic card, memory, keyboard, etc. Hope this helps you out
Sometimes this can be even simpler. Put in your Windows CD and boot to safe mode command prompt and type fixmbr. This will repair your master boot record for your primary boot harddisk. Eject the windows CD and reboot and see if it fixes your problem.
Two things you can check. First, whenever you burn a DVD or CD you must be sure to "close" or "finalize" the disc. Often this is done automatically, but double-check to make sure. If the disc was left "open" so that more files could be added later then it will probably only play on the computer that burned it. Second, there are some DVD drives that just won't read every type of recordable disc. Ask your friend to burn a DVD-R instead of a DVD+R and try to play it on your computer. Or, check if his DVD+R recording plays OK on other computers. If so, your DVD drive may be faulty and need replacing. Good luck.
These are two different problems...
1. most likely you have loaded too many programmes in the startup...uninstall the unwanted programmes...and clean the registry by registry cleaner.... clean your c drive or the drive in which OS is loaded by system tool...disc cleanup (in accessories)
2. increase your RAM if you still want to use all the programmes you have loaded.
3. Use a cd rom cleaner disc to see it the rom stars reading...or else you will have to replace the CD Rom
