Check boot order in Bios. Sounds as if yours is set - Floppy; CD Rom; HDD.

Try resetting to CD Rom; HDD; Floppy.

Restart your computer press F2 for Set up as it's booting and scroll down to Boot Sequence

PS. I would set it to HD, CD, then floppy.

As your machine boots, keep pressing the Del key until it takes you into the bios (setup)

Look for boot options and reset the order. Save and exit and the PC will reboot.
