    It sounds like it is trying to boot from a CD in your drive. Remove all media and try again. But usually when it finds a CD that is not bootable it will move on and boot form the hard drive. Post back whether or not that helps.

    Thanks but didn't work. it wont even get to that screen. i have only two options (i think) tab or esc(?) my cpu has been shutting it self off for about a month. i thought it was the memory so i started uninstalling programs & deleting files.
