One of the Functions buttons might direct you to a system restore point.

Try tapping each one at start up.

first, check your capslock key before you start typing.

next, try putting the cd in the tray, turning the ocmputer off, and when you turn it on, hit f12 or f10 (depending on what kind of computer it is) and this will bring you to a boot options menu. there should be a 'IDE Device/ CD-ROM drive' or something close to that. Select that boot option, and follow the onscreen instructions.

If that doesn't work: it's most likely a hardware failure. more testing would be needed to determine exactly what device on your computer is culprit.
