Try getting into BIOS tap Del as computer starts. Have a look to see if the CD drive still shows. You can also remove the CD while in BIOS. or in Windows right click the CD dvd drive and choose Eject

You could try removing the BIOS battery for a few hours the refit and try to get to BIOS with the Del key when it starts and set defaults

May be a coincidence but the PSU may have gone

unplugge the power and taken out the laptop battery.

Now try pressing the power button for about a minute or too. Nothing will happen but ty it. Now put the power bcak on and plug in the laptop battery.

C if this resolves the issue.

Removing the battery restore the BIOS default settings. You may have to reset somethings if its not quite right. Hope it starts
