    One common cause is disk errors. You might not be able to "fix" it. You should have a qualified technician look at it to see if anything can be done. It's possible that disk errors can be recovered, but these aren't actions that can be taught easily nor guaranteed. An on-line forum is not the place to learn unless you're already trained, but they can be easy enough for someone who has everything already available (if the actions are even possible). -- Tom

    Not 100% sure on this but try booting and press F2. Select a different boot drive other than your current HD and insert your Windows disk. That may get your system to boot from the CD/DVD.
