Computer reacts toward a normal DVD as a bootable DVD

  1. Hello all,
    I have a PC running XP with the following specs. When I put some DVD which contains some apps and multimedia files, and restart the machine, in the boot screen (when the name of the motherboard and other hardware are coming up - the black first screen) it reacts toward that DVD like a bootable DVD and writes "Boot from CD/DVD" and will be frozen. That is, in this case, neither it goes to XP OS nor any other keys (like, Enter, ctrl+alt+del, and so on) work. I don't know what is the problem with the machine and that DVD. Is there any idea how to fix this problem please?

    Have you tried changing the boot order. In the bios. Sounds like the computer is set to boot from the dvd/cd rom 1st.
