Question about Computers & Internet
You have to set the BIOS to boot from the DVD. For this you have to enter the BIOS setup.
There are different methods to enter the BIOS setup according to the BIOS type.
In most computers you have to press 'Del' key just after it's switched on.
In IBMs it's F1, some Dell computers it's F2 and with HP laptops it's usually F10.
Just after you switch on the laptop, close to the bottom of the screen you might see which button is to press to enter 'Setup' (i.e. BIOS Setup).
After you enter the Setup you have to change the Boot Order. Again how to do this depends on the type of BIOS.
Hope this answer will help you. If you want more help, let me know the brand of your laptop.

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.

There is no reason you can load Windows 7 on a Lennovo G580, all you need is a Windows 7 32/64bit Installation DVD with a Product Key. I assume you laptop has a 64bit compatible processor. The Support for your laptop: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073548 Supports Win 7 and Win 8. Are you doing a downgrade?
