Well i used both the dvd and the flash stick which i burned the iso to the laptop im using right now and install would boot just fine so i guess it cant be the iso that causing the problem

How are you burning these disks? I've never heard of PW CD not booting itself as it's supposed to do.

Use ImgBurn at 4x speed: ImgBurn - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

If you can't boot DVD or PW CD to wipe the HD, can you take the HD out to wipe it in another computer using Elevated Command Prompt to run Diskpart Clean Command?

Then when you return HD to problem computer it Windows 7 DVD should autostart.

What is your Windows 7 version and bit rate? How are you activating it?

There is a backup program that can do this, a better route is Linux with Windows, I forgot the sequence for this though.

Make sure all of your cables are good and connected securely. Try another OD. Unplug the OD when trying flash stick install. Iis this a known-good flash installer? If not write ISO again using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown.

You'll need to get the disk booting, either by entering BIOS setup to set DVD drive first in boot order, tapping the BIOS one-time Boot Menu key at boot to select DVD drive, or autostarting PW CD to wipe the HD which will in turn cause Windows 7 DVD to autostart.

Are you getting the Press Any Key to Boot DVD prompt?

If these fail after trying them repeatedly - often disk is just being booted wrong - then test your HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. This disk will also autostart and can wipe the HD after checking and fixing HD if necessary.

Acronis True Image has a feature to load a backup on a new mobo and only update the drivers.

So i managed to wipe my whole disc and guess what,still the same problem.I assumed that it has to be my windows 7 iso so i downloaded ubuntu and tried to run it but it will stuck at ACPI core revision(Same happened with partition wizard).Seems we are running out of option here maybe i need to update my bios or something?

You can try to get hold of a ERD65_x86_Win7_RTM / ERD65_x64_Win7_RTM ISO file (from MSDart Suite) or UBCD4WIN ISO file from Internet, you can try to boot in to these live Windows CDs and check the Event Viewer to find the cause of errors. Using these CDs you can even get a backup of your data from the laptop to an external hdd.

You can also try to boot into Safe Mode with minimum drivers and check the system.
