    Go back into the BIOS and reset it.

    FWIW I have a Dell puter also and if you just want to boot from CD,put in your bootable disc,restart and tap theF12 key. It will then give you that option,works everytime for me.

    More details would be helpful. When you go into the BIOS setup, what devices are shown as connected? What boot devices are listed? You need to get the CD/DVD drive showing up and in the boot devices. Even if you had a USB drive that was bootable, you would still need to be able to access the boot menu.

    What does that mean? We need details if we are going to be able to provide worthwhile assistance. What EXACTLY did you try, and what EXACTLY were the results? We would like to see a post the looks like a Russian novel, long, boring, and full of tragedy.

    Now that we have some useful information, What version of Windows are you attempting to install?

    Possibly useful link:

    Dell Insprion 15
    That's not the model number. It would be more like Inspiron 15R 5537. Details help.

    What OS did the laptop come with and which OS are you trying to install? It sounds like you are trying to change Windows versions.
