Please check the CD whether the cd is a bootable one or not in any other machine. If it is bootable and is not running on your system the problem is with your drive. Please arrange for a different bootable cd if it is not working even on different machine, And do remember to keep the first boot device in bios as cd rom drive

WI'll not open in safe mode it displays that unable to enable in safe mode or activate windows in safe mode

In this case the windows is corrupted beyond recovery ..and you have to make a new installation of the operation system or to engage the recovery partition or use the recovery disk if you have such a thing available ...If you do not ,just use a regular bootable disk with the operation system on ...and make a clean install ..after that locate the drivers for it ..from the manufacturer's support site ..sownload them and use them so that your laptop be able to work ..
if you do not have a disk with the drivers..I recommend to make one ..ore store the drivers on a memory unit ..before starting to install the operation system , cause after that you will not be able to connect it to the internet without the Lan card driver..unless you use an external wireless or so ..and have a separate driver for it ..So ..first make sure you download the drivers from here ..
(select drivers...than model /than operation system ..and download them all just to be sure...For some models there are more than one driver for a device ..cause they use more than one type on a model ..)
after that borrow or buy or make a bootable cd with the operation system ..and go for it ..
Press F12 on boot and select to boot from cd ...and be sure you have the bootable cd inserted ..and confirm the boot from cd by pressing a key (any) when it asks ..and the install process will go on ..

How can i reformat my computer?

Hi there. You need a bootable Windows disk for the next operation. Insert the bootable Windows disk into your CD rom and restart the machine. The PC should boot from the cd. Follow the prompts on screen and say "New installation". The next screen will show the harddrive on which you want to install the operating system. Select drive "c" and it will say that you cannont have multiple operating systems on the PC. Type "F" to format the drive and continue with a fresh installation. Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask about anything regarding this matter

Ok, in order to install a new operating system you will need to wipe your current hard ware. Create a boot USB, Flopy or DVD with the correct operating system you would like to install. I would recommend that you use a bootable usb which you can find many guides on how to set up. If the operating system you are trying to install, is windows based you can download windows boot tool for free and it will configure your USB. Once you have the operating system set up on a disc or usb you simply place it into the machine power the machine off and then power the machine back on and follow the prompts on the screen.
