OK, keep tapping F8 repeatedly at boot till you see the advanced boot menu. Select "Repair my computer", navigate to the command prompt.

Type chkdsk c: /R then hit Enter.

Let the chkdsk complete, reboot.

Even if you get it to boot from the DVD drive, you still need a proper 32 /64 bit installation disc to carry out a "repair install". You will need to obtain one of those before proceeding. OEM's recovery disk cannot be used for repair install

OK, lets try different approaches.

1) It could be a boot sector virus. Try the kaspersky rescue cd.

Download FREE Bootable Rescue CDs from Kaspersky, BitDefender, Avira, F-Secure and Others - Tweaking with Vishal

The only issue is whether the computer will be able to boot from the cd.

2) Possible RAM error. Try swapping out the RAM sticks- that is change their respective slots or take out all but one stick, then try reboot.

3) Possible bad hard drive. I dont know what brand hard drive you have but you can download the specific diagnostic and run it.

HD Diagnostic

Edit: See if you can boot from a bootable usb stick (or a linux live cd). Heres how to make one (method 2):

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

If you can, navigate to the folder c:\windows\minidump and copy any .dmp files in it, upload them here.

Well, if you've tried out all the things I suggested and its still no go, then there are 2 more things I can think of:

1) Take out the hard drive from the laptop. Now try to boot from the cd rom using any bootable disk available. If that doesnt work, try with an external dvd drive.

2) Hook up the hard drive to another computer, then run chkdsk and drive diagnostics to determine whether its good.

Hi Bill2
One more thing the OP could try:
1) Remove Power cable.
2) Remove Battery.
3) Than hold down Power button for 30 Sec's
4) Refit all.
