Question about Computers & Internet
When you say formatting my windows 7, are you trying to reinstall windows 7?
media test failure 99.999% usually means that the HD is unavailable. Re-seat the hard drive and see if that helps. If it doesn't try to slave the hard drive somewhere else and see if you can read it. If these don't work then your hard drive is a paper weight.

Could the boot record on the CD be damaged? Try it on another computer to find out. As the live CD loads the program in RAM, you need to see if your system has enough RAM (It depends on the minimum amount of RAM required to run the particular Linux Distribution)
By the way if you are interested in installing Linux inside Windows XP without creating a separate partition, Ubuntu offers this.
Hope it helps.

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)
If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that
Beep codes Pc
More beep codes
Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.
If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.
If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.
Now connect one drive only and boot again.
Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.
Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem
If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

Check the BIOS to make sure that the CD rom is the first boot devices in the bootup sequence, also make sure that the cd rom does show up in the BIOS.
Make sure that the CD Rom itself is good or the boot cd you are using is good, try it on other PC.
