Default Darik Boot Failed

I was wondering if anyone had any way of testing CD/DVD Drive to see if it was defective (hardware diag or PC Check software). The thing is I can burn files properly on my computer but everytime I try to boot from cd it says "boot failed". They can boot off my brothers PC with no problem but not on mine. So I can burn but not boot. Checked my BIOS and set it to boot from CD....

Any suggestions? Any stupid thing I am forgetting to set?

I can boot from a Windows Vista OS CD, so I know I have done it before.

Only while trying to boot. It works fine in the OS, I can burn and read.
