Howdy and welcome to CTH:

Boot into BIOS and check to see what the Secondary Master is set as..

If it is the cd-rom, make sure it is being recognized..

Also, what operating system??

Watch your system as it is booting.. you should see something like "press delete to enter setup".. that's BIOS..

Also, your system manual should give you detailed instructions as to how to get into BIOS and the settings once you get there!!
