I'm having problem to boot cd, i changed the CD as primary boot already, which is correct but when it try to boot from the cd, i can hear the cd room spinning for 20 seconds, and stop, and what i got on my screen is black, and a small "_" flashing , and nothing happen.

My cd was fine, i tried with three windows cd ( xp,vista,7 ultimate) but all of them having the same problem, please advice me on this.

hi there,
could one of many things.
could you please boot the computer normally then put the disk in and see if autorun etc works, as your dvd/cd drive may be faulty as the "_" usually appears while the disk is being read.
also are they upgrade disks (xp, vista, 7 ultimate) because they arean't bootable if so.
try open up your BIOS and set device priorities again.
or probably there is a problem with a Hardware, I once had that kind of problem; I don't know exactly what is going wrong. I tried also different kind of OS all of them are bootable and working OK to the other computer, but when I trying to install any of them, it says that make sure devices are powered on. I was thinking it was my mobo because everything is working ok, the dvd drive, and the hard disk. Just wanna share with you :)
