can somebody kindly tell me why I cannot boot from my CD...?

my PC OS is XP Pro window
I changed the Boot sequence at the Advance Bios window to have First Boot to CDROM and press F10(Save the changes)
I restarted my computer and at the POST, when the prompt > Start from CD > I press any key but the computer continue to boot up till Window OS ?

I still encountered the same problem after numerous System Restore Action !! > my OS kept rebooting. I think it is not due to "virus" but some Applications/Software conflict....because I encountered some prompt stating = something like Isass.exe / Services.exe > before the OS rebooted itself.

currently, I deleted away 2 items within my Start-Up list, they are A Word Document / and another is a "C" prompt shortcut (for this "C" prompt shortcut, I do not remember I put it there but it was there ???)

can anybody please help me on these ?

thanks everybody

Did you have the cd in the cd drive when you started the boot-up?

Are you sure the cd you are using is a bootable cd?

Are you sure your cd is capable of reading the disk?

Be sure the CD drive you're using is the master drive on the secondary IDE channel. I've had trouble before with some motherboards when trying to boot from the slave. If you have more than one CD/DVD drive connected, try using the other one.

Ensure that the BIOS is properly recognizing that the CD drive is present.
