Do you have friends/relatives with a PC who would let you try if your DVD and your CD boot from their computers?
A computer doesn't have to be old in order to need a BIOS upgrade: for my first computer there were about 5 upgrades available within its first year of life. The second one, a Sony Vaio, needed a BIOS upgrade immediately because it wouldn't boot from CD/DVD.
In order to upgrade your BIOS you go to the web page of your computer manifacturer, see if there is a BIOS upgrade available and follow *very carefully* their instructions.
If it is a PC put together by somebody other than a well known manifacturer, you'll need to know the make and model of your motherboard and visit their homepage.
