What is the boot order set to in BIOS? If your BIOS does not have a boot order, can you press a key to choose which disk to boot from? If so, can you choose to boot from the CD? If that fails, suspect bad hardware on the part of your CD-ROM drive.

I would suspect a hardware failure as mentioned and don't know what does not read all types of files specially exe means I guess you mean you can't run programs if that's what you mean that could be anything even a virus or it could imply a hardware failure or maybe you just need to clean the DVD-ROM drive's lens if you can reach it
