Default Won't boot from CD drive

My Compaq Evo 510 won't boot from the CD drive, any suggestions?

I'm not experienced in hardware so if this questions seems stupid.. don't mind me.

Just as a note it runs on a Linux operating system if that helps.

Did you change the boot order in the bios?

Please tell what you already tried

If your CD drive reads cd's then you need to change the boot order in the Bios.

If it doesn't read CD's then you need to enable the drive in the bios.
