HP Pavilion does not boot from CD

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi I have a HP Pavilion laptop with AMD processor and Windows Vista. I want to reinstall Windows Vista but I can not get it to boot from CD. I went to the BIOS and changed the order so that the CD-ROM drive boots first, but it still didnt work. I upgraded the BIOS but it still didnt work. Any ideas? I want to format the hard disk and reinstall a clean Windows Vista copy. My laptop does not have a floppy.

Does the CD/DVD drive work at all? Can you browse the Vista disc in Explorer?

Ok I was just asking. Does the disc boot on another computer?
