Default Boot from CD, HELP

Im trying to install Windows Vista on my computer and and i put the cd in and i reboot my computer it starts up regulary with press DEL and F8 and i can access those so i know my keyboard works. then it says press any key to boot from CD. put when i press the buttons nothing happens my computer just starts up.

Why wont it boot from CD. I know my keyboard is working unless it just stops after the DEL and F8 part. any help would be great.

Did you buy this, or is it burned?
