    Is there something specific you'd like to see in BIOS, because I don't think there is anything interesting there.

    p.s. I don't have any external cd readers.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll watch that from now on.

    As for the CD drive, could it still be the problem if it worked fine in the OS?

    setup utility is just regular BIOS settings; all is well there (pretty sure)
    When I retry I get the same error. Boot order is CD first

    I am aware of this, but the computer is way out of warranty and I don't know a better place to get help. When you mention BIOS settings do you mean other than boot order/devices?

    Yes it can, but it doesn't even sound like the disk spins before I get the error.
