    My laptop doesn't boot my windows 7 DVD please help me

    This problem can be happen if DVD ROM of laptop is not working or BIOS setting is not set for booting from DVD drive. If DVD ROM is not working then change it. Go to BIOS setting and choose first boot device as DVD ROM if it is BIOS setting problem. This can solve your problem. It is always good to buy licensed copy of OS and other software.

    Thank you..

    Hello! am Fabian,
    when i turned the computer on it tells me windows did not start successfully. it wont ...

    to solve this problem you need at list the operating system installation CDs/DVDs and a pair of screw drivers.
    using the screw drivers, open the system and carefully unistall any or all newly installed hardware device. try to boot again, if the system boots correctly, you may need to consult the manufacturers of the new hardwares you just unistalled for installation guide. but if this does not solve your problem you will need to boot your system using the operating system installation CD/DVD. all you need do is;
    1. access your systems BIOs setup utility program by pressing the "Del", "F1","F2" or "F10" as the case may be. select its advance option and set its boot sequence/priority to boot from CD/DVD first then save the setting and exit.
    2. insert the operating system CD/DVD ROM, when the system prompts to boot from the CD/DVD ROM press any key and wait to allow the setup initialisation process to complete. once complete, the system show 3 options from which you press the "R" key and wait next it prompt you to mount onto your WINDOWS installation simply press "1" and press the "Enter" key then enter your password if any and also press the "Enter" key.
    3. on the command prompt enter the following command;
    chkdsk /p then press the"Enter" key wait for the process to complete then restart your computer.

    if the problem persist you will need to reinstall your operating system. visit microsoft website for detailed installation guide.

    i hope this information will help.
