Try safe mode and see if it will start on there.

Not sure if it is asking you to change the start up to CD or not you would have to go into the bios for that.

If it works in safe mode you should be able to go to device manager and change PIO mode to DMA mode.

hmm cancel that having a look at mine there is no ultra DMA mode available on W/7
