No the computer will not boot with or without the cd in the drive.
Lets see whether you can boot normally (e.g lets by-pass the CD booting option)
Can you get into the bios to check that your boot sequence is set as you want it (normally get into the bios by pressing the del
key, or the F2
key (it may tell you the key to press on the boot screen)
once in the bios look on one the pages for the options for Boot Sequence and set it to:
First Boot Option set to HDD
Second Boot Option set to CD
The above should now check the hard disk first
and boot normally into your regular operating system
BTW, what operating system are you running on this PC?
If you can now boot into your OS try and burn your PCLinuxOS LiveCD again (you may want to set your CD to burn at a slower speed if you keep getting disks that don't work)
Then go back into your bios and change the boot order to:
First Boot Option set to CD
Second Boot Option set to HDD
Hopefully you can now boot the LiveCD.....
