Did you try the CD on another computer to see, if it'll boot?

Maybe if you drain the CMOS?
Some times Virus affect BIOS?
Just a thought to kick around here?
I am happy to Help in it.

The CMOS refers to battery backed-up memory that holds the BIOS settings. If this has somehow become corrupted and is giving bad information to the BIOS, or is not actually storing the boot setting you choose, it can be cleared by opening the computer case and either removing the small backup battery, which is usually a button cell, for a while or moving a jumper on the board to a position that clears the CMOS. Often this is labelled something like CLR_CMOS. If you do this, you could have to reset things in the BIOS such as drive boot order.
Before trying this, I'd enquire if you have another bootable CD to try, to confirm whether or not it can boot from a CD at all. That would indicate what direction to look and what else would be worth trying.
