Default Hmmm... Problem, help please.

Alright well the other day I turned on my computer, and It wouldn't do anything... Black screen, not even ASUS screen then Windows, nothing... So I disconnected everything, reconnect, nothing worked... Then clicked the DVD to take the CD out and left the thing opened, turned it on, and it worked.

What is causing this? I can't turn on my computer without having the CD out or it will freeze.

adjust the boot order in your bios its trying to boot off the cd and wen it doesnt find an os it stops so reordering it will fix the problem.

I think jcortes is right. Check the boot order in BIOS.
