Try taking out the battery and booting up with the adapter only.

Ok, the first thing is to load the BIOS default settings.
Then, set the cd-rom as the first boot device, and try to start windows setup from cd.
If it loads and detects the hard drive, the it is promising.
Another way to check your system for working capability would be to use a Linux cd (kubuntu is perfect for this) and see if it loads and works correctly. The interface is very similar to windows, so you will not have prblems using it. And it has also a MEM Test as a booting option, wich I reccomend you to use.
