Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.

When you hit F12 or whatever F key to go to the boot drive menu, make sure the cd is in and that you select CD/DVD Drive and the dvd should prompt you to hit any key or will automatically start loading for the recovery. Just tell me if you need further assistance.

This can be a driver issue.
I would go to the manufacturer website and retrieve the most updated driver for your wireless card.
Then, go to device manager
Right-click on "My Computer" -> Click on Manager --> click on Device Manager
And uninstall the wireless card. For example, my wireless card name is
INTEL/Pro Wireless 3945ABG Network
After you do that, go to Control Panel and click on 'Add Hardware". Click on "Next" and it should detect your hardware.
After it detects the wireless card, point it to the most updated drivers that you downloaded.
See if that works.

Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.
