Problem is that I have fixed it before having ssd instead of hdd In it but recently was removed and since then it won't boot with any hdd and won't read any bootable dvd or usb it does recognises hdd in bios hard drives working on any other laptop or pc usb and dvd works also I have no idea how to fix this one. Any suggestions?

    The motherboard may have failed in an odd way

    I hope it's not. For some reason it reads one of windows install disks but it's scratched to much so it freezes won't read anything else. I think there's a problem with bios just don't know what it is yet

    Can you try updating the bios?

    Don't know how to do it yet but looking at it right now. I have removed cmos battery to reset bios but still the same problem.

    Solved! It's an windows 8 laptop originally and I'm trying to install win 7 problem was that win 8 using uefi and after I just changed to legacy and it's working brilliant now.
