At Advanced Boot Options have you tried "Use Last Known Good Configuration"?

I'm unable to select this as the keyboard doesn't function when this screen is displayed, strangely it does function when I'm given the Error Recovery screen with choice of either Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally.
I have tried to boot from several recovery DVDs (both internally and in external drive) and USB stick and just get the black screen with cursor.

Does tapping F11 at boot give you a boot menu? You may have to insert the DVD quickly before tapping F11 or power on the computer, insert the DVD then power down by holding the power button. Power on and tap F11. You should get a boot menu where you can select your optical drive.
All your data currently on the computer will be erased if you use the Recovery DVDs. Is there data on the computer you need?
Edit: Is this an external Optical Drive?

Whenever I try to turn the laptop on it doesn't even boot or do anything that I can hear. The only thing that happens after a reset it is that I hear a whirring noise for a second then nothing, while at the same time the power light is flashing with the num lock icon. Also i have not put in any new memory nor altered the original components..
