    So i tired to boot from a cd and my computer no longer will boot from a cd. It has worked flawless for several years. I have no idea why as my drive is fully functional and ive tried 3 different bootable disks that I am positive work as I have used them all several times. I have noticed that my dvd-rom drive is now labeled as my D: drive and my CD-rom as my Z: drive when in Windows. I cannot recall what they used to be labeled but I believe this is different then what it used to be. And yes, I have the BIOS set to boot from CD and even tried disabling boot from hdd and still no luck. Any ideas to how i can get this working again as i use this feature rather often? Thanks.

    EDIT: It for some reason works when i plug in a ps2 keyboard instead of a usb keyboard. Thanks for the fast response.

    Windows or any other OS will not do that.

    Check your bios settings again. If all else fails, pull the cmos battery out of the motherboard and replace it after a few moments. Look in the bios and try again.
