cd drive will not load disks
a few days ago my computer had stopped working. everytime i would start the computer up it would freeze when it got to the windows screen. i was unable to open any program. i couldnt even open the start up menu. i was going to use a windows disk to reformat the entire computer and just start it out new, however when i put the disk into the drive, it would not load. since im unable to click on anything in windows, i couldnt run it. How would i go about getting the disk to run?
thanks in advanced
